To buy Islamic books and other products for your children please go to the Children's Catalog.  

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.
