Ebtisam Al-Beiti

Ebtisam Al-Beiti is a published children’s author and early years professional who has had a passion for education since high school, where she used to volunteer to read stories for preschool children. Earning a Post-Graduate Certificate in education and working in managerial and teaching roles inspired her to write books with a strong educational message for young readers. Her first book, Can I Go Out Now?, aims to teach young children about current environmental and health issues in a fun, playful and interactive way. Her second book, Citrus the Smoothie Sloth, sheds light on positive well-being and healthy eating through a charming tale about a special little rainforest sloth.

Al-Beiti is set to launch her third book, A Dragon Called Blue, in 2024, focusing on themes of family and self-belief, and written for a younger audience. She is a member of the Global Council, which works towards achieving selected Sustainable Development Goals. Being an advocate for education, she has strived to contribute to the education of young children and has also volunteered in special needs schools in her free time. Al-Beiti lives with her family in Dubai and is not to be confused with her identical twin sister!
