Review: I have always wanted a neat reading journal a little more private than Goodreads and receiving one from Shoohada Khanom to review was just perfect. It’s very creative and cute. I love the cover too; especially the two girls at the bottom, masha’Allah. While my son sat on my lap to take advantage of his allotted screen time, I filled the journal with children’s books on hand that we read alhamdullilah. I’m not sure if I filled it the right way but this works for us for now.
My son suggested that we color the stacks of books; I’m still entertaining the idea of letting him pilot this reading journal alone *haha!* I can’t blame him; we are color-maniacs around here.
Anyway, if you run out of pages, you can select from many other designs with the same contents that the author also has in her repertoire. See below.
I plan to get the one below for myself insha’Allah. It’s befitting.
Merci to Shoohada Khanom from sending us a reading journal for our homeschooling activities purposes all the way from the UK!
To close, check out these journals and Khanom’s other works on Amazon here. They are a must-have. I almost never log the books we read. This will definitely help us keep track. Who knows? Perhaps, we will know if we read thousands of books before the normal age for kindergarten like one of my friend bi’ithnillah. *winks*
Thank you for reading,

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,
~A Ducktrinor Mom~
