Arabic books/resources for Kids of All Ages and Levels

Arabic is the language of the Quran and super important for all of us to learn and teach our kids. But it is definitely hard, and we often get busy teaching other subjects during the school year.

Summer is the perfect time for more Arabic Learning. Schools are finally out, and if your kids are anything like mine, they are complaining about being bored...

So what better cure to boredom than FUN learning (my kids are rolling their eyes at me as I say this).

I have compiled this list of Arabic resources, divided by age and level, to help you decide which resources are right for you. I know there is so much out there, but please note that my lists/recommendations are based only on items/books that I have personally tried!!
