Event Description

Al-Falah Academy & Madina Institute U.S.A are excited to host Omar Khawaja, award winning author of Ilyas & Duck for a fun, interactive story telling session for our children & elementary students! This is going to be a great, family friendly program geared, primarily geared for all elementary students between 1st and 5th grade (6 - 11 years old). Omar will be reading the story once to all the children and then one more time with interaction and acting from the 4th & 5th grade children!

Parents are encouraged to attend as well and join their children for this fun program!

We'll also have copies of Ilyas & Duck, which Omar will also be signing at the end of the storytelling program!


Ilyas is a 5 year old boy with an insatiable appetite for questioning the world around him. Duck is fun-loving and goofy and is quick to satisfy Ilyas's curiosity about the world. Together, the two best friends embark on exciting adventures in search for answers. Along the way they meet interesting characters and make new friends.
