The paper-back edition of the best-selling 'P is for Palestine,' now has a revised Appendix at the back of the book with a few new titles (such as Hebron etc) and includes all the Arabic names, as they are written in the original language and how the Arabic incl. a few other words are best pronounced in English (simply transcribed). World's first-ever English-language ABC story book about Palestine is told in simple rhythmic rhyme with stunning illustrations to act as an educational, colorful, empowering reference for children, showcasing the geography, the beauty and strength of Palestinian culture. Anyone who has ever been to Palestine (to some also known as the Holy Land) or who has Palestinian friends, colleagues, or neighbors knows that this proud nation, located on the western-most point of Asia, not that many nautical miles away from Cyprus, Alexandria (Egypt) and Greece, is at the center of our world. It is home to the sweetest oranges, most intricate embroideries, great dance moves (Dabkeh), fertile olive groves, and sunniest people! Inspired by Palestinian people's own rich history in the literary and visual arts, specifically by children's authors and illustrators such as Naji al-Ali (1938 - 1987), Ghassan Kanafani (1936 - 1972), and Mohieddin El Labbad (1940 - 2010) among others, P is for Palestine was first launched in November 2017 as the first title in 'Dr. Bashi's' Diverse Children's Books Series.' Its sequel 'Counting Up the Olive Tree: A Palestine Number Book,' written by the same author and illustrated by the gifted American artist Nabi H. Ali was published as paper-back in June, 2019 and should become available here on amazon in August, 2019. "'P is for Palestine' is exactly the kind of positive reinforcement needed by children whose identity is constantly under attack."
