Wendy Meddour: Meet Lubna & Pebble!
Date/Time: Saturday 4 February 2023 09:30-10:15
Venue: Al Amwaj II, InterContinental, Dubai Festival City
Session No: 27
Lubna lives in the World of Tents, and her best friend is a pebble. Pebble listens to her stories and comforts her, but the time comes when Lubna realises that a new arrival in her temporary home might need a friend like Pebble to help him more than she does. Wendy Meddour brings some of the big questions in our world today to young children in an accessible and sensitive way. The power of friendship and empathy shine through in this tender story which all will enjoy, and there may even be the chance to create your very own pebble friend!
