‘When I Grow Up’ by Sundus Iraq

Sundus 2

When I Grow Up by Sundus Iraq is a children’s book that has become my favorite! Why? Because it has Arabic writing. It’s perfect to instill the language to children. Arabic seeds indeed I’ll keep iA.

The Author Sundus Iraq is also the Illustrator. This preschooler’s book teaches our children to dare to dream to become or do anything they put their minds to.

The book is realistic because I remembered my son who doesn’t speak English yet wanting to be very independent and do the same things we do.

For instance, he wants to drink in regular glasses and use normal spoons instead of children’s eating ware. I drew parallels with my son and the protagonist of When I Grow Up and smiled cheerfully.

You can get your copy on Amazon or the publisher’s website along with other wonderful children’s books.

Now, here is a sneak peek page. Lovely isn’t?sundus 3 sneak page

    Jazakum Allah Khairan sr.
    I feel joy every time I hear a parent experienced a joyful memory while they read my book to their child.
    A lot of memories came back to me while finishing this book and every time I read it again.
    Thank You!

        I apologize for the spelling error in my previous comment. A dear friend of mine told me once, “The cause of such error is MKS ( Multiple Kids Syndrome ) ” πŸ˜‰
