Tofaha is a series of activity books in Arabic for children aged 4-years old. The inspiration of the three-book series comes from what children see and encounter daily, in the streets or at home. The target age group is 4-year-old Arabic-speaking children. The series introduces them to three primary elements which are numbers, letters and shapes. Each book focuses on one element only, to make it specific and not confusing. Each book covers a specific learning element individually, introduced using one specific component. For example, they will learn about numbers and simple addition, using fruits. The three books are: The books of numbers: with fruits The book of letters: with animals The book of shapes: with transportation vehicles Alongside with the books, a simple additional puzzle game was created to make the learning experience more engaging for the children. The puzzle is for four vehicles of the book of shapes. The name Tofaha, meaning apple, was chosen simply because an apple is a symbol of knowledge, and knowledge is what the books are all about. Additionally, an apple is an element in one of the books, therefore, it is familiar to the kids.
