Abeer Al Taher began her journey in the world of children’s books after she graduated from the American University in Beirut, as she began by writing a number of fictional stories targeting Arab children and teenagers.

She drew inspiration for her first official publication from her little daughter back then, Yasmine, who became Abeer’s source of creativity in a complete series of books that carried Yasmine’s name. This series includes various titles, such as ‘Yasmine and the Monster’, ‘Yasmine and the Bird’, ‘Where is Yasmine?’, and other notable books, such as ‘What do I like?’, ‘Nobody likes me’ and ‘I have found a Treasure’.

Al Taher was invited as a reader by several establishments in Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait and the UAE. She had written around 28 publications before setting up her own publishing house under the name of ‘Dar Al Yasmine’.

Abeer Al Taher strives to boost reading and writing skills in children, as well as to sow the seeds of love in contemporary Arabic language.

Thank you, Abeer, for your wonderful efforts!

Abeer Al Taher graduated from the American University in Lebanon in 1975, and earned a degree in Children’s Education and Literature. Her writings are influenced by foreign stories, and she has embarked on a mission to take the Arabic story to a new, more advanced level. She began writing in 1999, and started out with the Yasmine series, which tackles children’s behaviour at home. This series was driven by her experiences with her daughter and was received with unprecedented success and acknowledgement. The series spread at an astonishing pace, and continues to be on the list of desired stories. It is also considered an auxiliary to scholastic curricula. 

Al Taher then launched the youth series ‘Ahmad Al Aqqad’, which left a clear mark in Arabic youth literature. This series is based on both fictional and realistic adventure, and assumes a narrative style that abandons all forms of monotony. Al Taher has taken part in several reading sessions in various countries. Dar Al Yasmine was established in 2006, and started out by printing and distributing Al Taher’s publications. Many writers since then have turned to Dar Al Yasmine for publication. Al Taher’s story ‘On the roof’ won the fifth place in the Etisalat Award in 2010, while her story ‘The Mischievous Cat’, which is being translated into several languages, earned first place in the same award in 2014.
