Welcome to Leila’s Books!

About Me

Hello! My name is Zahra, and I am the proud founder of Leila’s Books.  I am passionate about creating a bridge between cultures and making Arabic stories for children accessible in countries where Arabic is not a first language. This journey began when I realised the lack of high-quality Arabic literature available for my own daughter (Leila, my motivation). Determined to provide her and countless other children with the magic of Arabic storytelling, I embarked on a mission to make these stories readily available and easily accessible.

Inspiration and Mission

As a parent, I believe in the power of literature to shape young minds and foster a deep appreciation for language and culture. Growing up with Arabic as my native language, I witnessed firsthand the transformative influence of Arabic stories on children. However, living in a country where Arabic was not widely spoken, I struggled to find engaging and authentic Arabic children's books. This frustration fuelled my determination to create a platform that would bridge this gap and bring the rich tapestry of Arabic literature to children around the world.

At Leila’s Books, our mission is to spark the imagination of young readers and cultivate a love for Arabic language and culture. We strive to curate a diverse collection of beautifully illustrated Arabic children's books that captivate young hearts and minds. By doing so, we aim to foster cross-cultural understanding, empower bilingual children, and preserve the invaluable heritage of Arabic storytelling.

Our Commitment

Quality is at the core of everything we do. We are dedicated to curating a carefully selected range of books that meet the highest standards of storytelling, illustration, and educational value. Each book in our collection has been thoughtfully chosen to reflect the richness and diversity of Arabic literature, ensuring that every child can find something that resonates with them.

We also understand the importance of accessibility. We are committed to making our books available to families, educators, and libraries worldwide. Our online platform provides a convenient and user-friendly shopping experience, allowing customers to browse, select, and purchase Arabic children's books from the comfort of their homes. We ship internationally, ensuring that children in all corners of the globe can embark on enchanting adventures through our carefully curated stories.
