The Sharjah International Book Fair is not only a platform for children to explore their favorite books, but also a creative place for the little ones, offering a wide range of activities.

From exploring books to solving puzzles and taking aptitude tests to putting their thoughts on paper, which is then stapled to the walls of the counter, the youngsters have a great time.

In Hall 6, young minds not only explore the pages of their favorite books, but also express their thoughts by drawing them on paper. Many of them painted the UAE flag on the occasion of Flag Day on November 3.

“I took some time to think about what I should draw. Finally I drew the flag of my nation, as was the occasion. Yesterday I had this flag in my hand and always in my heart,” said Fátima, 6 years old.

Many young people expressed their thoughts about the ongoing war in Gaza while drawing Palestinian flags and took the opportunity to convey messages of peace and solidarity.

“As I browse the Internet, I see many children dying because of the war that is happening in the world. Every child should be happy and playful. May the Almighty protect us all,” said 8-year-old Amna.

Ahamed Fahman, a 6-year-old boy, said: “I painted the Palestinian flag because I want people to know that the children there deserve peace and happiness, just like us. War is not the solution.”

Some drew their favorite architectural marvel, Burj Khalifa, along with the flag of the United Arab Emirates, and others highlighted an image of Dubai’s Palm Islands.

The Korea Pavilion in Hall 6 has many sessions for children. A moderator teaches lessons on how to solve life’s problems and challenges through small adjustments.

John Fraklin, a 10-year-old boy who attended the session, was delighted to boost his brain power and solve a puzzle. “Normally we avoid a task thinking that we won’t be able to solve it. But if we focus more and think of ways to solve it, we can surely do it. It just requires our efforts,” Frankiln said.
