If you’ve been around my blog for a while then you’ll know how much I love and admire f2o’s artistic talent and designs, so much that my book cover is actually illustrated by f2o<3 Just before Ramadan was out and everyone ready to flock the country to their summer vacations Fatima Al-Othman, the lady behind f2o, sent me a bag of her latest products: colouring books, a current trend in its own, featuring f2o’s children, Essa and Asya, with the Alphabets in Kuwaiti dialect.
The colouring books arrived in the bag above, the bag itself is very cute, showcasing f2o’s family of characters gathered around a tea tray and looking like they were having a blast of a good time! The idea, well originally what I thought I would do, is to hold a competition on my social media account for followers with children and have them win the colouring books. That being said, I now have only a couple of colouring books left on me and they are reserved for a friend’s children already so, sorry no competition but I’ve sure made a few friends/parents happy!
Now that the colouring book trend/craze is in full swing and this generation’s children seem to never want to tear themselves away fro the iPads those colouring books would make a good educational top, teaching children as they colour about Kuwaiti words in both English and Arabic. Not any Kuwaiti, really old Kuwaiti, some words I didn’t even know myself like bayenbagh and teena!
Tha2, TH, comes with the word thoub and I was relieved! I know thoub! Really cute illustration too.
No I’m not going to go through the entire Alpahbet but, will you look at that! D! Danderma! Me! Danderma and its meaning “ice cream”! That word I for sure knew and, obviously, adore! Now you have no excuse guys, you should know what danderma means by now :p
Really cute, lovely f2o! Thank you for the colouring books! My favourite page was the one with the letter D obviously but overall I think this colouring book is a brilliant idea for a both a fun and educational time for the kids. It would make an excellent gift or a birthday giveaway or a school prize for doing well from teachers for example. Now my dear f2o, how about colouring books for adults? Or even your very own illustrated app for children to play with?
