If you are following me on Instagram, you know we are getting obsessed with the beautiful Qatar National Library. I also asked if you want to see the books we borrow every (almost) week from there. And because so many of you wanted to see all the books I decided to start this series What’s on the shelf? here on my blog.
In each post, you will find books and a very short summary of the book. I hope it will help you chose better books for your young readers. I’m dividing the books into two main categories for children, to begin with. I shall add more as I go in the future posts.
First, for children – Fiction/Fun and General Knowledge. For moms – Mom Reads, this may include a variety of books from lifestyle, food, parenting and more.
For Children – Fiction/Fun:
It’s a story of an Elephant who travels in train, meets new friends and how they share they toys and play with each others favourite. It’s a great way to teach children the habit of sharing their favourite toys and belonging with their peers.

It’s a wonderful book of numbers. All the animals are lending a handle with gardening. It’s an innovative way to learn and encourage numbers in young children.
It’s an imaginative story of a teddy bear named Corduroy at the department store and how he attempts to find his lost button of his overall. And in the end meets his new owner (friend). It’s one of our favourites.
