Alphabet Kids Book Umar's Magic Oven Review and Giveaway Ends 11/9/2011

Alphabet Kids was created by Allegra Joyce kassin, a mother of five and grandmother of seven. When Kassin started reading to her kids and teaching them to read, she noticed a lack of multicultural children’s books. She decided to create the Alphabet Kids, along with Emmy Award and Parents Choice Award winning co-author, Patrice Samara and 6 cultural experts-one for each book in the series.


The Alphabet Kids Company sent us Umar’s Magic oven to review. The Alphabet kids: Allegra, Elena, Isaac, Oni, Umar and Yang are multicultural kids who hang out at the Alphabet After School Center. The Alphabet Kids are six kids who come from different backgrounds, but play well together and are very good friends.


In Umar’s Magic Oven each child brought bread into school which was part of their culture. They brought in their type of bread to share with each other. Umar’s father came into class and taught the children how to cook bread in a solar cooker. The bread was called Khubez in Arabic or just plain Pita bread. The children shared all of their breads with each other and enjoyed their time together.


The Alphabet Kids books are written to show kids they are all different, but they can still be good friends. The books look beyond color and differences in culture to try to bring people together where they can work together to make the world a better place for everybody. The books seem to be for kids around six or seven years old, they are soft backs and retail for $4.95 each. You can also buy the complete series in a set.



My son read Umar’s Magic Oven and he liked the book. The book fits Florida well because we are a melting pot. There are every kind of people and cultures living together in Florida. My children are used to their friends being from different cultures and they get along well with all the children they meet. The Alphabet Kids books are a good idea and teach children to look beyond colors and cultures and into the hearts of the people they meet.
