    "Although there are many great Arabic books in the market, it is hard to find a decent translation of them, especially in children's literature. Matha Fee Batn Mama is a very nice example of a Arabic children book; it will tell you that in kids world there are no cultural differences, they are just kids in every country/culture."

    "A little girl asks her mom why she does not go to work like everyone else. Mom replies that, she has not just one but many jobs. She is a cook, a health advisor, a nutritionist, a teacher, a nurse, a secretary, a therapist, a singer, a toy engineer, an interior designer, etc... and all she asks for in return is a kiss"

    "The story seems a little ridiculous if you ask me. There is no way they could have come up with a better story to help represent Arabic people. It is an okay book but the price is outrageous."
