Message from Ameena Saiyid (OBE, SI), Publisher and Managing Director

Proudly Pakistani-owned, Lightstone Publishers publish high-quality, affordable books for schools in Pakistan, with teacher’s guides and lesson plans, and we develop teachers professionally. Muse's digital resources designed with the STEM approach support our courses by helping primary school teachers teach Maths, Science, Urdu, and English through games, stories, songs, and animations. Many of our books are developed indigenously while some include content from renowned publishers: all meet the Pakistan National Curriculum objectives and are available throughout Pakistan. Our maths and science courses have been developed in alliance with leading publishers in Singapore, a world leader in maths and science education. Lightstone books build 21st century skills: critical thinking, creativity, compassion, collaboration, and communication. We also publish fiction and non-fiction for adults.

Message from Zubeida Mustafa, Journalist

Lightstone’s debut in Pakistan’s publishing world will be widely welcomed by readers, writers and educationists alike. With Ameena Saiyid at its helm, Lightstone promises to provide the diversity, competition, and professionalism that is needed to boost book production in the country. Ameena Saiyid has a rich and varied experience of over three decades of book publishing as the former MD of OUP. Her magic touch transformed school textbook production, making it the pillar of the publishing industry. We can expect Lightstone to bring the same perfection and quality to its products that Ameena is known for. Happy reading!
