This subscription service promotes reading and Arabic learning by sending you one Arabic children's book, or more, each month.
At a time where kids are reaching for iPads instead of books, it’s really refreshing to see services which help promote reading. That’s why we were super excited to hear about @arabicbookamonth, a subscription service that sends you exactly what it says in the name. The website lets customers customize their selection by specifying the age of the child and their gender. And if one a month isn't enough for you, you can even increase the number of books you receive at a time.
'Arabic Book a Month' is hitting us hard with nostalgia; it brings us back to when we're reading our first books, and we definitely wish we had a service like this growing up. Nothing quite beats the element of surprise as a kid paired with the idea of feeling special, and this service checks both those boxes. This personal curation also means that parents don’t really have to worry about finding books that are suited for their kids. Understanding the sense of companionship that books provide, 'Arabic Book a Month' also donates books to underprivileged children every month.
