Two Heroic Leaders
Following the high-profile launch of an Arabic children’s story about the UAE’s esteemed leaders, this inspiring tribute has been translated into the English language. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, launched the Arabic book to celebrate the designation of 2016 as the Year of Reading. Created for school children across the UAE, Two Great Leaders is elegantly translated and beautifully illustrated. It tells the fascinating story of the country's founding President, Sheikh Zayed and his late father, Sheikh Rashid, and describes their joint vision for a country where children’s dreams can, and do, come true. As Sheikh Mohammed once said “there is no Dubai and Abu Dhabi; we are one”; Two Great Leaders is a powerful tale of two visionaries celebrating the unity of a nation and the important pathways they trod. This entertaining tale encourages a future generation of youngsters to read and remember the UAE’s past.
