ASCEND WITH ASALA: THE ALPHABET (اصعد مع أصالة: الحروف)
Leveled readers allow children to gradually strengthen and expand their reading skills. In this first set, each book focuses on one letter of the Arabic alphabet featuring 1-2 words on each page. This 28-book set is broken down further into beginner, intermediate, and advanced titles that feature increasing complexity for children just starting to put letters together into words.
With simple illustrations on each page, this series helps children build their vocabulary with accessible and every day words. As they see their own progress, children will gain confidence in their ability to read Arabic, allowing them to enjoy what they might otherwise consider an uphill struggle.
Parents and educators will love this set and the rest in the series that organically introduce grammar concepts, allow children to recognize letters in different forms, and work their way to fluency in Arabic.
The Ascend with Asala series is the recipient of the Khalifa Award for Education and is one of the most highly regarded series among Arab children's publishing houses.

The hardest thing about early readers in Arabic is that often the vocabulary is completely unfamiliar to children. Overall, the Asala series does a good job sticking to words kids are familiar with, so they can focus on learning to read and not just on new vocabulary. There are some exceptions, like using the word ليث , but in general it's good.
I purchased the alphabet beginning readers and love them. They arrived quickly and in good condition. The set was really colorful and my boys love them. Thank you Maktabatee.
