Wednesday, August 1, 2018

LUMS alumna, Ayesha Aslam, BSc (Honours), 2002, has authored her third children’s book titled ‘School Rules’. Other books in the series include 'The Mealtime Battle' and 'Lost and Found'. This series of books has been published by the Oxford University Press (OUP) Pakistan and all three books are available in stores and online at the OUP website. The books are aimed at children between three to six years of age. Sara Aslam illustrated the first two books, while Faiza Farooq is the illustrator of 'School Rules'.

The book follows the story of a little boy who at first is reluctant to go to school, but then in conversation with his mother discovers the benefits the school offers to him and how much he will miss out on if he does not go. In Lost and Found, there is a conversation going on between the same little boy who is looking around for his toys and keeps asking his mother if she knows where they are. The Mealtime Battle, the story follows the same characters, where the little boy does not feel like eating his food and his mother convinces him how important it is to grow up big and strong.

Ms. Aslam is a communications consultant, working in managing digital and print channels. Her children's books are included on reading lists at local schools and she intends to continue writing for children.
