Jordanian-Swedish author of children’s books Flora Majdalawi encourages Arabic-speaking families to read with children. It is very important to start reading with your child as early as possible. Reading creates a sense of togetherness between a parent and child, and it develops the child´s language skills, speech, concentration and vocabulary.
