Assalamu alaikum warahmatuLlah wabaratuHu 😊
So anyone that knows me, knows how much I love reading books. If a book looks interesting enough (yes, I judge books by their covers sometimes) regardless of genre or even the intended audience, I’d pick up and read.
Can you imagine my happiness getting two books to review? Yay, life! 💃
Alright, BismiLlah 💓
Two awesome children books by Shoohada Khanom out for the world to enjoy !
Little Blue Skater Boy.
Publisher: Djarabi Kitabs Publishing
Illustrators : Mariana Marangoni and Gillian Tolentino
” When Isa is asked to take biriyani to his Nanni’s house, some one decides to jump out at him and then tag along. A re-telling of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ with many twists. ”
I absolutely LOVED this story. What makes this book different from every other retelling is that it is ISLAMIC.
Need I say more ?

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,

So I’ve finished this guide/workbook last year, would you believe, but I’ve finally managed to put it up on fiverr.
Hey, it wasn’t my fault that I listened to people who say to ‘get all your funnel in place before you launch your product’. I’ve finally said enough to waiting and put it up anyway.
I’m nowhere near to finishing my main product, which is a parenting book about how parents can nurture their relationship with their child through proper communications. I actually have 8500 words for this book but it just snowballed and at the moment seems so insurmountable that I stopped for a while (my procrastination kicking in). I will get back to it one day. Soon, I hope.
So at the moment the ‘lead magnet’ is in place (that is, my guide/workbook). I say that it’s better to have it up out in the world then to…
