She spent a good part of his life reading with him, first bedtime stories and later books on topics as various as astronomy and Japanese culture.Suzanne Mubarak, an ardent sponsor of Egypts Reading for All project, a national campaign that aims to encourage reading as the basic tool for acquiring knowledge, illustrates beautifully how reading probed Mohameds imagination, triggered his curiosity, shaped his personality.

My own belief is that reading to Mohamed from an early age developed his ability to express himself clearly and confidently, writes Mrs. Mubarak. By the time he was two he was bilingual with a wide vocabulary in both languages.The joy of witnessing the boys youthful metamorphosis and the rare glimpses into leisure moments of the Mubarak family life are counterpointed with Mrs. Mubaraks intimate description of her own profound grief and her personal struggle with loss, coupled optimistically with her will to keep Mohameds memory alive through her continued mission to propagate reading and literacy in Egypt.
