Shannon Norris, Exhibition Director of Mother Baby & Child Show commented, “Due to the overwhelming success of our previous shows and the unprecedented demand for Barney, he has agreed to perform again this year for the children of the UAE.”

Children see him as their trusted friend, one who accompanies them as they learn their ABCs, develops their social skills and helps them to express and manage their feelings.

Through five distinct areas; Sharing, Caring, Imagining, Dancing and Learning, Barney helps children develop a range of skills essential for their personal development. In a nutshell, Barney offers the most complete skill set around.

Barney will perform live on stage each day at the Mother, Baby & Child Show and will educate and entertain the audience through a series of interactive music, song and dance routines. Naturally audience participation is a must!

Twins explore personality types in co-authored work

By Nasheet Jaffer Khan, Community Solutions Editor
Published: April 02, 2009, 22:46

 

Dubai: Dubai-based twin sisters Mariam and Fatima Masood attempt to help break personality codes through their work of fiction I Know Who You Are.

The novel spins its tale around the nights and days of a 12-year-old boy, Sultan, who stumbles upon magical powers while cleaning a closet, as his family prepares to move house.

What follows is Sultan’s journey to understanding the varied personalities of people, aided by his grandfather.

Being human we have problems with humans,” 25-year-old Fatima said. “Actually, it should be the contrary. Every person has a character skin [type], which affects their manner of interaction and relationship with others.

The book surmises that if you are able to identify the personality type, you can understand people better.

 

Mariam said that sensitivity and a keen observation of people helped provide the fodder for the story.

She said: “Just because people have physical similarities, they expect each other to think alike, believe or have similar opinions, too. The book broadly categorises the basic personalities.” She is quick to add that they “don’t claim that all personalities can be categorised“.

Employed as kindergarten teachers, it took the twins a year, endless cups of tea and countless “rain cheques” for family gatherings to finalise the book and its prime characters.

When it comes to creating something from nothing there are quite a few things that have to be considered. The development of the character ‘skins’ was a challenging task as we had to make each character as powerful as the other and yet unique,” Mariam said. She added that no character had a negative side to it as “everyone has a good reason for doing what they do“.

Squint-eyed nights of research and belief in their story gave the twins the courage to push the envelope and mail it to the publishers.

Fatima said: “There were times when we used to feel stressed and disappointed, waiting for publishers and literary agents to respond. However, from the time of sending the queries to signing the publishing contract, it only took us three months.”

Thinking of the time we started writing and to see the book published has been a rewarding experience. I feel like going to the bookstore just to see the book there!” Mariam said. Fatima added: “It was similar to seeing the harvest of a crop which has been planted, nurtured, protected and prayed for day in, day out. It is still unbelievable sometimes.”

The twins said they could not have written the book without each other – it was “a joint thought”. They said: “Though we are identical, little is common between us. We still understand each other the best.”

How has the book changed their lives?

They said: “It has simplified it. We know how to deal with people more effectively.

The book is published by Olympia Publishers and is available at Jashanmal Bookstores.

 

 

“I KNOW WHO YOU ARE!”…THE BOOK RELEASING IN SPRING 2009

http://iknowwhoyouare.wordpress.com/

” I KNOW WHO YOU ARE!” is written by Dubai based twin authors, Mariam Masood and Fatima Masood. It is being published in the United Kingdom by Olympia Publishers and shall be out in Spring 2009 with the grace of Almighty Allah.

If you are a book lover, this ones for you.

I am among one of the few first readers of the book and I must say its a very gripping piece of modern literature. The concepts put forward in the book are very unique and capture the mind of the reader. You tend to read and re-read the core lines and concepts as you unfold the mystery woven around the characters.

It would be a good handbook to keep as a guide to understand people we live with. I believe the character skins portrayed in the book are very real. As you read the book you tend to say, “Oh! yes, I know this one; it is so and so in my life..oh so now I know!!”

By Faryal

Here is what the authors have to say about it:

I Know Who You Are! is a unique novel which has a blend of fascinating fiction and hard-core reality. It not only tells the readers the story about Sultan and his family but it also reveals the secret of dealing with people successfully.

 The book presents the concept that every person has a Character Skin which guides his behaviour and inspires his conversations. If you know a person’s Character Skin, you can understand, respond and deal with him effectively.

 “Truth is only valued by the ones who are righteous, for the ones who are possessed by their own beliefs are indifferent to it.” (Mariam & Fatima Masood)

 I Know Who You Are! diversifies a person’s perspective through positive thinking. It invites its reads to explore, enjoy, reflect  and analyze the concepts the Character Skins, people, possess.   

I Know Who You Are! will be in bookstores in Spring 2009.

Creative Mumz at the Book Festival- Update

www.creativemumz.wordpress.com

We truly enjoyed participating at the Used Book Festival at Qanat Al Qasba, Sharjah from 29th – 31st March , organized by Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services. Qanat Al Qasba is a great place for family outings There was a huge collection of Arabic and English books for kids as well as grown ups at the book festival. We had around 200 books at our tent and sold nearly ¾ of our collection. We sold many titles, the response was great.

We began with setting up our tent on the 28th. Hashma and I shopped for decorations; made the flyers and the front banner, put up everything. I had scores of preparations to be completed, a tough job with the little ones around! But we really enjoyed the enriching experience. And most of all I loved shopping for books at the festival. Even my family shopped for many and we all ended up with a huge collection of interesting reads.

Thanks to everyone who donated books to Creative Mumz for the event and volunteered at the tent.

Special thanks to Hashma who helped with the preparations, Mena for coming on the first day and volunteering for the whole morning, special thanks to Sana, Mariam, Fatima, Amir and Yasser for their support and for taking shifts to man our stall. Thanks to my parents who came along on Friday to encourage and support.
