Description from the publisher:
A unique book that will help children understand the true meaning of this widespread religion.
A collection of short stories, poems and prose that examines the world through the eyes of Muslim children. Written especially for North American children, both Muslim and non-Muslim, each story represents a tenet of Islam in a way that is both entertaining and enlightening. Non-fiction sidebars help to explain and amplify the Islamic references. Some of the stories are humorous, others are touching, but all are compelling stories of children learning and growing withing their culture.
Mary Anne Cree, Canadian Children's Book News
"The book provides a useful and interesting introduction to Islam for non-Muslim children and may also prove to be helpful for Muslim children who are dealing with some of the same issues as the children in the stories...the reader also comes face to face with the personal side of Islam in stories which are sometimes quite moving...The combination of story and information makes this a useful book for multicultural communities or for children wishing to learn more about Islam."
