The Kalimat booth before opening morning: Among the bestsellers are Fatima Sharafeddine's new YA novel, فاتن, her new CD, جوز و تين و توت أحمر , and أحمد الحلو .
Kalimat also had this cool new ipad version of الدجاج باق بيق: the book, read-alongs, games, and...watch the chicken lay an egg!
From the UAE-based Buzoor (also before opening): I loved these tissue-box animals! Also, it's where I finally picked up my copy of بيت للأرنب الصغير.
At Asala, of course, they were featuring their أفتش عن هواية. I picked up some other books; I will track them all down and list...maybe later today?
Dar al Hadayek, of course, proud of their award-winners. I picked up a number of books here, as well as some cool posters.
Bright Fingers! I loved these guys. We're already enjoying the literacy puzzles and stencil books.
All the Etisalat winners! Congratulations again to all!
The book bus...beautiful, although I didn't manage to get a peek inside. Parked just outside the Expo Center.
