The Little Green Drum

By Taghreed Najjar and Lucy Coats

  • Paperback
  • £4.99

Brand new blue Early Reader title set in Lifta, Palestine about a little girl who finds herself with the important job of waking the village up for the Suhoor meal during Ramadan, when her father falls ill.

Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey.

Samia's dad is very important. Every Ramadan he wakes the whole village up in time for breakfast.
But this year, things are different and Samia must show everyone how strong and brave she can be.

Originally published in Arabic, but now retold for a English-speaking audience, this is a charming and empowering story about Ramadan, fasting and the ability of girls to do any job they put their mind to.
