The Tale of Queen Jehan

The Tale of Queen Jehan book coverThe Tale of Queen Jehan And The Three Kingdoms is a beautifully illustrated children’s book that teaches racial, ethnic and religious cooperation through metaphor.

Three groups, one in the human kingdom, one in the animal kingdom and one in the reptile kingdom have to learn to work together and use each other’s knowledge, skills and strengths to solve a problem.

Based in Bahrain, a small kingdom in the Gulf Region of the Middle East, it is a story that is intended to celebrate the long-standing religious freedom in that kingdom and point to broader solutions for religious and ethnic cooperation for many modern countries.
