Eitedal Theker Allah

Saudi Arabia is introducing a new textbook including work by a contemporary female poet:
"For the first time in Saudi Arabia's history, little girl students are reciting a poem written by a Saudi female poet...

"The two poems entitled My motherland and My teacher were part of her collection of poems entitled The Songs of the Nightingale. The collection, released four years ago, is aimed at children ages five to nine.

"It is the first collection of poems intended for children in Saudi Arabia, according to Eitedal, who studied Arabic language and literature at King Faisal University."
