The stories in Mido: In Modern Standard Arabic are light-hearted and easy to follow, but also engaging, all the while providing excellent reading practice in Modern Standard Arabic for students who are perhaps not ready to tackle Arabic literature.

The first chapter serves as an introduction to Mido and his family, as we take a peak at the household’s typical morning. Mido’s father, mother, brother, and sister each feature in a chapter showing a day in their lives. And Mido, our hero, stars in the remaining chapters.
