We write books in Egyptian dialect for children under the age of 5.
Why Egyptian Dialect?
Because we are Egyptian. We write our books natively in the Egyptian dialect and naturally include a cultural aspect, which makes for a better language immersion experience.
Why under the age of 5?
Because this is when language is acquired most naturally.
Arabic is a tricky language. We believe that the time for classical (fussHa) language will come, but not in the first 5 years of a child's life, especially for those living abroad.
In these first years, the more you interact with them in dialect, the better language skill they will have, the more confident they will be to speak it, and the more attached and interested they will be to the language.
