Two of these arrived yesterday from CreateSpace, and we cut it a little close but we made it alhamdullilah. I loved all these manuscripts the minute I read them masha’Allah. I had to have them 🙂 subhanallah. So DKP accepted them all! There are four of the most creative and loveliest children’s book stories I have ever read mA! I pray we can find more stories like that for Muslim children insha’Allah. My son enjoys the illustrations for sure.
Little Blue Skater Boy : When Isa is asked to take biriyani to his Nanni’s house, someone decides to jump out at him and then tag along. A re-telling of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ with many twists.
Imagine : It’s bedtime! Yunus wants to talk but his sister Saarah goes on a imagining spree. She talks about animals, and dinosaurs and aliens as friends. She talks about sending an Eid gift to orphans and cooking extra meals in Ramadan for the poor, and a whole lot more! A fun, creative story, that also shows a loving sibling relationship.
Who Could I Be? Through the book, children will learn about animals and their distinctive features, and the repetitive use of questioning encourages them to use the clues to keep guessing and wanting to turn the page to find out what animal it is. Most importantly, it sheds light on and promotes the beauty of our Creator’s creations.
Kamillah the Butterfly : Kamillah is a caterpillar who is struggling to understand life’s changes. With a friend by her side and discovering a beautiful surprise at the end of her cycle, she happily accepts the biggest change. A lovely book any child can relate too. It will definitely leave little ones wanting to read it repeatedly.
Of course they are all 5 stars for me. Read them and tell us if they don’t deserve that rating ;)!
Jazakh’Allah khair for reading,
