"The chatty informal rhythms and the mix of everyday detail with the universals make this picture book a great family read-aloud." —Booklist

"Dawud's latest book A Picnic of Poems is another masterpiece of poetry that captures the essence of every child's hopes, dreams, and fears, in the most colorful and imaginative way. It is a delectable treat for the whole family, filled with beautiful illustrations. Every part has a wonderful lesson to draw from and will provide all, young and old, with great guidance for generations to come." —Zain Bhikha, South African singer/songwriter


A collection of thirty poems to keep the young and young-at-heart entertained for hours. These poems cover a number of topics including motherhood, daily prayer, baby siblings, life on a farm, the animal kingdom, bullying, mosques, Ramadan, appreciating nature, and more. The book comes with an audio CD to sing along to these joyful yet educational poems.


"A Picnic of Poems"


I've packed some poems for lunch,
some rhymes for us to chew,
a simple, sippy, soup of songs,
to stir and sing and stew.
Like all good meals to munch,
it would be very rude
not to begin with bismillah,
to bless our poetry food.


Canadian-born Dawud Wharnsby began writing poetry, composing music, and performing in his teens. Since then he has become a voice for socially conscious and spiritually minded individuals in the twenty-first century.
