In this episode of the podcast, we spoke with Reem Makhoul, the co-founder and creator of Ossass, a publisher of children’s books written in Arabic dialect. In our talk, we discussed what drew Reem to begin writing children’s books in Arabic dialect, the importance of publishing materials in dialect v. Modern Standard Arabic,  and the impact the stories have made around the world. I had a great time speaking with her and I hope you enjoy the show.

You can visit the Ossass website and purchase the books on its website.
