Explores themes of image and celebrity, insecurity and jealousy, identity and friendship, infatuation and love. . . It is the story of a man held captive by his personal search for beauty.

by BWW News Desk - Sep 23, 2014

Little Big Kids, an up and coming cultural lifestyle brand for young Muslim kids, is proud to announce the release of their newest storybook, 'Ilyas & Duck and the Fantastic Festival of Eid Al-Fitr.' It's a delightful story about a boy named Ilyas and his best friend Duck as they explore the excitement of Eid, while learning about the holiday's charitable nature. Like many great stories, this one comes with an interesting spin. Cleverly weaved into this story about Eid are reference to Christmas and Hanukkah. It's a fresh approach to storytelling in an otherwise banal Islamic children's book market. 'Muslim kids in the US grow up surrounded by many great holidays and traditions from other faiths,' said author and founder of Little Big Kids, Omar S. Khawaja. 'So when writing this book it was important that I placed Eid in a context that they can relate to.' By incorporating other highly festive holidays in a book about Eid, Khawaja's hope is to 'elevate the fun and importance of a holiday that is an exciting time for young Muslim kids.' This is the company's second storybook under the banner of what has quickly become a very popular Ilyas & Duck series. The innovative stories follow the adventures of two loveable characters, Ilyas and Duck as they explore the world around them while conveying positive messages that help build strong identities in young Muslim kids. Now with two titles, Little Big Kids is transforming the Muslim children's literature market. The San Diego State University's Dept. of English and Comparative Literature said the first book 'demonstrates the universality of beliefs in a colorful and educational adventure.' The dynamic characters, engaging storyline, and positive lessons helps satisfy both the needs of young readers and concerned parents looking to bring in quality literature to their bedtime repertoire. About Little Big Kids Little Big Kids is a US based cultural lifestyle brand for young kids, centered on Arabic and Islamic themes. Established in 2007, our goal is to incorporate Beautiful Arabic and Islamic inspired themes into common products that are an everyday part of your child's life.

Dr. Carl and Jennie Robinson to Publish Inspiration Photography Book with Tate Publishing
by BWW News Desk - Sep 23, 2014

Local authors Dr. Carl and Jennie Robinson recently teamed up with Tate Publishing to kick-start the publication process of their new photography book Still Above Ground. Still Above Ground is a pictorial look at one of New Orleans fascinating tourist attractions, highlighting some of the greats and not so greats from the early 17th century to present. It is an awe-inspiring display of French, Gothic and Greek revival architecture. When asked about their decision to sign the book, Tate Publishing owner and acquisitions editor Trinity Tate-Edgerton responded, 'We are thrilled to welcome Carl and Jennie into our family of Tate authors.... This Beautiful collection of photographic masterpieces will change your life if you let it. The imagery and the way in which Carl can capture an image are soulful and poignant.' The authors/photographers feel equally enthused about their partnership with Tate Publishing, stating their 'Christian mission/values, along with feeling [they] appreciate... the idea, photos and history we portray' motivated them to choose the publisher. When asked about the inspiration behind the photography in the book, the authors replied, 'Photographically the inspiration comes from a love of taking photos in the right sky, light, background and 'feeling' what is before [us]. Historically, the inspiration was to tell the wonderful stories of those who created and formed New Orleans, black and white.' Referencing the popular saying 'I'm still above ground' as a response to asking an elderly citizen how they are feeling, Jennie explains that title of the books was inspired by the cultural norm of New Orleanais being buried above ground. The photos in the book demonstrate the overall theme that 'in life, as in death, we will still be above ground in New Orleans,' said Jennie. Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book will be available upon its release through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or Dr. Carl Robinson is a pediatrician and semi professional photographer, who has shared photos with many locals as gifts. He has been actively learning photography for the last 20 years, attending multiple workshops and seminars within the country. As a physician, he also published a baby care book in 1997 and is presently working on a second book with another pediatrician and nurse practitioner. He states that 'the joy of recording and giving permanence to the beauty in nature and landscapes is what has led and continues to guide me to be a photographer.' Jennie Robinson started writing poetry as a teenager, and felt God talking to her since she was in her youth. As she became a nurse and began working in hospice, she continued to write and find the words to express 'a good death.' She now mostly writes papers and grants.
