The Avrah Stories by Abu Abraham


The Avrah Stories by Abu Abraham

The Avrah Stories is a collection of children's stories created to entertain and pass on a father's wisdom to his children. Each story is set in a different time and place, and based on the author's experiences of different cultures. While each story is independent from the one before, woven into each one are the threads of people's thoughts and emotions. This collection is aimed at children aged 5 to 10 and encourages them to look into the mechanics of the heart and mind to understand a person's actions and character. Among the collection is 'Jake's Lake', which explores the difficulties faced by a child who is transplanted into unfamiliar surroundings. This particular story suggests that sometimes fighting one's own corner is not enough. The adventure draws the reader into the narrative but in the process, describes some of the life lessons we all face. The story underlines the importance of self-esteem and self-worth that in turn, liberates individuals to value those around them.
