Abstract:Long, long time ago, there was a king in a fruitful land. He decided to collect taxes from his people. At the same time a representative from one of his cities approached him and asked him to make a deal. King asked what kind of deal? He replied, “That he will ask few questions from his ministers. If his ministers were smarter than the people and answer the question correctly; the people would pay the taxes. On the other hand, if the answers were wrong, the people would not pay the taxes.” The king accepts the deal.

Oh,No said Elephant

Abstract:All the animals want to play hide-and-seek, oh, no - Elephant asn't very good at that. He's too easy to find. What about leap-frog? He's not good at that either. What about hopscotch, or skipping, or tag?
No, no and no. Poor Elephant isn't very good at many games, and the animals are staring to get frustrated with him. Luckily there is one game Elephant loves to play, and the animals oblige him, though they may have to say oh, no themselves when he wants to play it again.
This rollicking, silly, repetitive text will have young readers laughing out loud and asking to read it again.

One hundred Rubies

Publisher:Peydayesh, Iran
Abstract:“One hundred Rubies” is a very popular book in Iran. But why is that? Why a simple poem has captivated the Iranian minds for so long. Rahmandoost, the poet of “One hundred Rubies” recalls the memory of the day he created the poem: [during the seven-year war between Iran and Iraq] we were stuck in our positions for a long while. There was a food shortage due to siege and we couldn’t get any supplies from the support line… after some time we saw one of our own soldiers coming to us with a supply crate. We asked him how he managed to get here, and he told us “not to worry” and that they had “drove the enemy off”. In his crate there was two pomegranates as well. I remember breaking one and as I did that, the seeds dropped everywhere. Suddenly I recalled my mother who had passed away some time ago. She had a ruby necklace. Without really thinking about it, I started singing a verse: “One hundred rubies in perfect harmony, sitting in a row in one place.” I send the poem to Tehran and it was published in Keyhan Bacheha [a former popular magazine for kids]. And it has been famous ever since. Sang into popular songs and imbedded in movies. A poem created in the time of war, reminding us all how beautiful peace, life and nature are.
