The Great Race to Sycamore Street Julie Mair

Ibn Sina: A Concise Life Edoardo Albert

This topsy turvy adventure on Sycamore Street sees brother and sister Hude and Amani arrive in the country with one thought: it was going to be a long, boring summer. They couldn’t be more wrong. In this warm and comical story, find out how, under the watchful eyes of Grandma Hana, Hude and Amani plan to save the prized peach tree and beat Bobby at his own game before leaving Sycamore Street behind.

Ibn Sina, who is referred to as Avicenna in Latin, was a true polymath. Born in the tenth Century his passion for knowledge was unbound, and due to the scope and brilliance of his work he can be compared to the great Leonardo Da Vinci. He served under princes and kings (and fled from them too), wrote books of philosophy that are still argued over today and set down medical treatments that continue in use. As such, Ibn Sina is often referred to as the most brilliant Muslim thinker in Islam’s Golden Age.

£4.99| Paperback | 160pp | Age 8+ ISBN: 978-1-84774-057-1

With illustrations, photographs, and maps, the rich and diverse world that produced Ibn Sina is vividly brought alive. £4.99 | Paperback | 104pp | Age 12+ ISBN: 978-1-84774-045-8

Ibn Sina: A Concise Life Edoardo Albert

In this short biography you will discover how Al-Ghazali rose from his humble background as a fatherless young boy from a small town, to become a successful student, a great teacher and the most famous thinker on Islam of his time.

Ibn Sina, who is referred to as Avicenna in Latin, was a true polymath. Born in the tenth Century his passion for knowledge was unbound. He wrote books of philosophy that are still argued over today and set down medical treatments that continue in use. As such, Ibn Sina is often referred to as the most brilliant Muslim thinker in Islam’s Golden Age.
