Happy Leap Day (2016)!
To celebrate this special day that only happens every four years, I’ve once again gotten together with a few friend bloggers over at Multicultural Kids Blog to showcase leaping activities the world.
Please visit For the Love of Spanish and Marcellina Maria on our blog hop today of things that leap.
Since I had already started our leap month of February with a leaping defda’a (Arabic for frog), I thought I would end it with another animal from my Arabic Animal Alphabet Poster that leaps.
The 17th letter Za (ẓā’) is represented by Thareef the zabi, which is antelope in Arabic.
Thareef is always playing practical jokes on his friends.
Other words that use Za are zarif (elegant), zufr (fingernail), and zuhr (noon).
You can find Thareef as part of the coloring book here.
