Author Nisrine El-Choueifati
Nisrine is a speech pathologist working in Sydney, Australia, and, as a tri-lingual child, she was able to enjoy stories in French, Arabic and English. Nisrine has always believed that when children enjoy interactions with books, they will be motivated to learn language. Nisrine has worked with families and preschool educators to encourage all children to interact and connect with language in books and learn about the world. The vision behind I Have a Magic Ball was that it could be read with groups of children and with children who may not engage with books just by sitting and listening. Nisrine wanted to create a story that comes to life, allows children to imagine and interact by throwing, catching and passing a ball while they read this story.
