Since the age of 8, Nadine Kaadan hasn’t stopped writing and illustrating children’s books - she simply knew that it was her calling  in life.

She started distributing her first fairy tales to her 5th grade class mates, and 20 years later she is an award winning children’s  book author and illustrator, whose mission it is to spread reading culture in the Arab world, in a way that is inspired by Syria’s rich  heritage.

Nadine has published over 15 books in the Arab region with various publishers, and believes that children’s books are the most  creative and effective tool to convey interesting and relevant ideas to young readers. Her stories sometimes touch on delicate  subjects like children with special needs, or like the current troubled situation in the Arab world, and other times they are just plain fun.
