Another Creative children's book by Khan, talks about Islam, and gives some stories as sample scenarios of what happiness to Muslim children realistically around the world. I would recommend it for third graders especially, this book also contains a recipe and facts about religion, culture, and being an American. It had many stories so its like a series entirely in this book which should be read that way and not all at once. ( )

Well-written short stories about Muslim children in different situations including one in which a boy is embarrassed because his mom dresses all in black and wears a niqab. One good story about being honest.

This book is geared toward children with stories and poems about the Islamic faith, including daily ritual and complete with a pronunciation guide for Arabic. Good for presenting this information to younger groups of kids. ( )
