and Educational Products
These are our children's books collection. I have put together
a short comment for each book. We like most of them because our children identify with
the characters in these books and as Muslim, books written by Muslim authors are
among the favorites in our home library. These books facilitate the learning of some
Islamic concepts and practices. For example my daughter wanted to wear hijab and
memorized Qur'an like the girl in 'Seven Suras Surprise'. She also enjoyed 'The Ramadan Adventure Of Fasfoose Mouse'. We read the
same story every Ramadan so that she knows what to expect and 'see' how other
Muslim have their Ramadan.
All these books picture Muslim women with hijab, boys with
kufi, girls with little hijab and pictures of people making salah and masjids.
All these help reinforce and build Muslim identity. Strong identity help build
good strong self esteem therefore help our kids be better Muslim.
I hope these review will help you choose the right books for your children.
In my opinion these books are one of the invaluable tools we have in shaping
them to be better Muslim whether we are in the West or East. Added to that
we are also promoting literacy and love of knowledge to our children who are our
assets for the future.
May Allah accept our good deeds.
