The Book Wars

Ramadan, a month of fasting observed by Muslims around the world, starts around June 18th this year and what better time than now to introduce you via this guest post to Lailah’s Lunchbox, a picturebook about Lailah, her lunchbox, and Ramadan. Here to talk about her book and the inspirations behind it is Reem Faruqi.

61x80imSllL._UX250_Reem Faruqi used to teach second grade and her favorite time was Read Aloud time. Now, as a stay-at-home-mom, her favorite time is still Read Aloud time. Of Pakistani origin, she moved from Abu Dhabi to Peachtree City, Georgia when she was 13 years old.

She based her first children’s book Lailah’s Lunchbox on her own experience as a young Muslim girl immigrating to the United States. Reem loves doodling, writing, and photography and photoblogs at www.ReemFaruqi.com. Currently, she lives with her husband and two daughters in Atlanta.

About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
