QFI is releasing read-alouds of various children’s books, working with authors, publishers, and writers from across the Arab world during this time of school closures worldwide.
Please join us here as we feature works by Arab authors from the Arab world and Arab diaspora in both English and Arabic.
Each week we will have a new English and/or Arabic video featured on our website, and be sure to view our QFI YouTube channel to access older read-alouds. Tune in every week to hear an exciting new story about the Arab world.
