بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
This is yet another simple yummy book which has 52 full colour pages of pictures of some fruits and talks about what colour is the fruit inside and outside,
This books is a good revision for the previous book of colours too as it talks about the colours of each fruit. What is really interesting is the concept of inside and outside the fruit plus the pictures show the inside of the fruit as well.
One page of the book has a chart with all the names of the Fruits in Arabic, English and the meaning for vocabulary practice. This is the same with all 8 books.
We enjoy reading this book and now have learnt how to say inside and outside. Khaariji w daakhili is what will be echoing around your house once you get into reading this book.
At the end of the book you get a couple of colouring activities and the next page shows the coloured picture as well.
Other than reading and understanding, there are so many activities you can do with Fruits. Simple one is just get all the fruits mentioned there and cut them and show the kids what is outside and what is inside using the Arabic Vocabulary. You can also teach your kids to use a knife and cut the fruits. We did cutting lessons at our Tarbiyah class last week and you may get some ideas from that post soon Inshaa Allaah. Basically you can teach them different methods to cut,
Added to this will be a yummy fruit salad day emphasising all the fruits and their names learnt and a yummy bowl of healthy food and of course the messy experience of making it with the kids as well.
We simply love the fruit salad as it brings about a lot of discussion and can be repeated over and over again. As kids grow you can talk about the healthy nutrients of each fruit and how Allaah has created His blessings in each one of them as benefit for us. You can also go through the life cycle of the plant by showing the seed and the fruit and how it happens. When cutting the fruits make sure you keep telling your kids or ask your kids to repeat what colour is it inside and outside in Arabic! It will be fun for any age!
If you are able to get to a place where you can pick fruits that would be a great outing to again practice the vocabulary in Arabic plus an outside adventure for the kids.
What else can you do!? Share with us below your ideas too.
This book can be purchased here for a reasonable price.
Watch out for the GIveaway post after we finish reviewing all 8 books Inshaa Allaah!
