I have no information about most of the books featured in this post, except that they are from Iran. Please help me out with translations or details in the comments, which I will then add to the post.

I think they are all from the 70s.

07 children's book from Iran
Travels of Sandbad (Seendbad? or Sindbad?) by Mohammad Ali Sepanloo, illustrated by Ali Akbar Sadeghi. (thanks to roma cintilante for providing details!)

This must be “Sinbad,” but there is indeed an Iranian cartoon called “Sandbad.” (Also, looking this up I see that WikiAnswers answers the question on everyone’s mind: “Is eating sand bad for you?”)
