My name is Rita A. Aouad Abinajm. I am an American-Lebanese mother of two amazing loving boys, Leonid and Mark. Moving with the family to Houston, Texas in 2007 made us do lot of absolute changes. One of them was changing my career as a registered nurse, and going back to college to study business management.
Wonderful things started to happeen. Working as a library assistant was one of them. This rich and joyful experience made me change my mind on working in health care management. I even decided that my garduation project should be a Teacher and parents’ guide to encourage elementary students to read more non-fiction and poetry books.
My life path brought me to Utah, where I found out that many public schools have dual French immersion program. Being Multilingual and French is my second language, made me wrote stories about a 7 year old girl “Rita.”
Yes!Rita! Since some of the stories had to do with my childhood, and I wanted to share them with you.
Young readers will enjoy Rita’s daily life experiences, her cute funny adventures, as well as learning some French words from her short French conversations with her parents.
I will keep writing and will make my collection bigger, hoping that one day, my children won’t need to buy books for their children to read
