Synopsis

Room 101 and Other Stories by Dr. Ahmad Bassam Saeh

A treasure that must be thrown away. A creature faced with mortal temptation. A discontented worm who longs to be a snake. Two friends whose understanding of hardship differs vastly. A rabbit who learns to appreciate his mother the hard way...This beautifully illustrated collection of twelve thought-provoking stories sets out to encourage children to reflect on their own character and behaviour as they approach the threshold of adulthood. Founded on strong Islamic values, these tales seek to foster the desire for self-improvement and reform. With their valuable life lessons - some happy, some sad - they provide a solid foundation for discussion of many of the key moral issues facing young people today. The stories appear here in their original Arabic form set alongside the English translation. For the benefit of language students, English-Arabic glossaries have been included at the end of the book and the Arabic text has been fully vocalised.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
