A Few Photos from the Sharjah International Book Festival (Kid Stuff!)

The Kalimat booth before opening morning: Among the bestsellers are Fatima Sharafeddine's new YA novel, فاتن, her new CD, جوز و تين و توت أحمر , and أحمد الحلو .

Kalimat also had this cool new ipad version of الدجاج باق بيق: the book, read-alongs, games, and...watch the chicken lay an egg!

From the UAE-based Buzoor (also before opening): I loved these tissue-box animals! Also, it's where I finally picked up my copy of بيت للأرنب الصغير.

At Asala, of course, they were featuring their أفتش عن هواية. I picked up some other books; I will track them all down and list...maybe later today?

Dar al Hadayek, of course, proud of their award-winners. I picked up a number of books here, as well as some cool posters.

Bright Fingers! I loved these guys. We're already enjoying the literacy puzzles and stencil books.

All the Etisalat winners! Congratulations again to all!

The book bus...beautiful, although I didn't manage to get a peek inside. Parked just outside the Expo Center.

    Books galore!! Awesome! Looking forward to hearing about all the great books you purchased.
    Now…what’s this iPad version of Kalimat’s…is it an e-version of that one book or do they have other books that work on there…or is it their own version of an iPad?

    The Kalimat Ipad app was launched at the book fair and will be available in the apple store soon. It is compatible with iphones, ipods and ipads!

      Also, Bodour correct me, but there was at least one another Kalimat ipad book in progress? But I think Dareen said it would just be a straightforward book-book, without any additional “stuff.”

      I’m interested to see how it fares…

        Sounds great, like Living Books in English… but only for i-thing owners, which we will never be…anything in the works for e-versions for the PC?!
