About the Author

Born in Lebanon and brought up in Saudi and in Canada, Abir Ballan returned to the American University of Beirut for her university studies. Her studies in public health and psychology gives a ring of authority to the ideas conveyed so engagingly through Abir's children's books. Her experience with group dynamics during her stints as a health education coordinator, PR executive and as a training coordinator and her highly interactive communicative style make her readings extremely entertaining events for children. Now a devoted full time mother, Abir's son, Zein is the inspiration for her three book Zein series dealing with contemporary issues like workaholic dads, bedtime conflicts and sibling rivalry. Her book Halwa, Halwa with its delectable illustrations and catchy text conveys in an entertaining but educative manner that it is important to eat healthy food. We have many more books from Abir that are due for publication shortly.

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.
