What may seem a complex message has been made simple and fun for the child to understand by the use of rhymes, choreography and vibrant colours.
The book is made up of a 30-page rhyme that is simple and educational. This helps the child to remember the story and new vocabulary allowing them to relate it back when asked to give a brief.The text and pictures are made big and distinct so that the child can comfortably identify what they see, and understand what is being read from looking at the scene.
People in general can relate to this story with their practical lives where ambition is pursued through patience and perseverance. A good message for the young no matter the age and what every parent’s focus is.
While truly the leaf only falls by The Will of Allah, the book is an allegory where life is full of obstacles one must overcome to reach their final outcome. The reader is reminded that success is in patience, perseverance and trust.
