Every major bookstore in Singapore has a special Children's Section with all kinds of children's books in English to instill the love of reading among the kids. Not only books, there are fun, interactive games, pop-up books and engaging activity books. But, there aren't many English books about the Arabic language for kids. It's not a stretch to say that Arabic language is one of the challenging languages to learn and it's important kids learn it at a young age. That was when these two sisters and mothers set on a quest to create their own books and they're winning awards for them! ?

Hafeezah Alsagoff and Hanan Alsagoff love teaching their young kids and all around their children's bedroom, there are many types of English books about alphabets, like magnetic books and even fun card games. But when they couldn't find similar books to teach the Arabic language, particularly on alphabets for their kids, they decided to do it themselves and thus, The Arabic Alphabet of Huruf Island series was born. This seven-book series is a creation of these two sisters and they prove to be a success after taking the Best Book Series 2021 award from Daybreak Press, a US publishing company!
