Whether your child is learning English or Arabic, Oxford First Arabic Words gives your child a head start in learning another language by taking a picture-book journey through a day, with familiar settings, everyday things, and cute little dinosaurs. There is a bird's eye view of getting readyfor school in the morning, the journey to school, inside the classroom, a birthday party, and even a trip to the seaside. Over 400 Arabic words and their English translations are given next to their illustrations, on every page.
