Reviews - What do customers think about Hakiba Kabira Min Al Himoom: The Huge Bag of Worries (Arabic Edition)?
Interesting book Sep 5, 2007
Well, I bought it as a recommendation from my sister (raising Arabic speaking kids outside of the Arab world as well). My daughter is probably too old to get the meaning of this book (3), but the age recommendation does say 9 - 12. I believe that it is also good for children over 5 years old.
It is about this girl who lets her trouble and worries grow until they become a huge bag that chases her every where. She is afraid to talk to her family, because they might dismiss her or worry themselves. Throught he help of her old neighbor, she manages to get rid of her worries. It teaches children to speak to grown ups about their feelings and worries instead of bottling them up. Good moral of the story.
I think I will be reading this a lot to my daughter, when she is slightly older.
What kind of bothers me about this book is that it seems like there is a hint about that girl growing with parents that fight a lot. Which is not the only reason kids worry or bottle up their feelings. I find it to be inappropriate in the context of this story. Maybe it can be included in a book about the topic. An important topic to address.
