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.

This video was filmed on April 1, 2019, the Arabic Children’s Book Day organized by Helsinki Central Library Oodi and Multilingual Library.
