The study used the descriptive approach, and a questionnaire consisting of (40) items distributed across five areas (language and artistic direction, objectives, content, values and skills, activities and evaluation). The questionnaire was distributed to a sample consisting of (40) educational mentors, and (70) teachers, who are supervising and teaching the Arabic language in Taiz province, Yemen for the academic year (2020-2021). The results of the study revealed that all the five fields of evaluating My Arabic language book was about average.

The results also showed that there are statistically significant differences between the evaluative estimates of educational mentors and Arabic language teachers due to the job variable, academic qualification, and years of experience.
