I’m not generally a sales booster, but for Arabic children’s books it’s a different story. And according to Allison Nasser over at Syraj:
Save 20% off at Syraj Today only! There is a BIG one day sale on September 1st. Children’s DVDs, Baby Einstein Arabic, Picture books, baby board books, music CDs, educational games and toys. You can watch DVD clips and listen to the Arabic songs for kids online. Buy and Try return policy, you can always return what you don’t love!
Nasser also says that Syraj has a number of new products this month, including a new Arabic Nursery Rhyme DVD created from a set of 3 board books and an audio CD. You can watch clips online at syraj.com.
Also, she notes that a new company that creates educational Arabic language games—Bidaya—has just launched. Nasser says that the Bidaya games are particularly tuned to a Montessori-style, hands-on education.
I’m particularly interested in the Arabic sandpaper letters and lacing cards on this page. Also—I hadn’t noticed before that you can listen to clips from some of the audio CDs before you buy. (My seven-year-old says of the clips: “I like that. It’s pretty nice. It’s pretty cool.” The two-year-old is nodding his head with the tune.)
Anyhow, today’s the day to try it out!
