"In Doha Ya Doha, Halla bint Khalid translates a traditional Arabic
lullaby mothers still sing to their babies today. It speaks of many
things Muslims hold dear, such as Zam Zam water and the Ka'bah in
Mecca. Colorfully illustrated by the author, this board book is sure
to delight even the youngest readers. Ages 1 to 3. (Al-Farazdak
Publishing [Saudi Arabia], 2000)"
