Noura Al Khoori’s picture book The Tender Hands tells the powerful story of Majd and his family, who are displaced by war but find hope through ‘tender hands’ – the people who come together to build a new home for the struggling refugees.
In this workshop, Noura will read from the book before leading the group in arts and crafts activities, making paper hands on which they can write good deeds they plan to do, and a display board where they can pin the hands.
The tutor: Noura Al Khoori is the author of popular picture books Fanteer the Fluffy Flamingo and Golden Dates. She has also been involved in writing short stories for animated films and apps and is one of the scriptwriters for the Arabic version of Sesame Street, Iftah Ya Simsim.
