Magnificently capturing the colorful world of Islam for the youngest readers, this breathtaking and informative picture book celebrates Islam's beauty and traditions. From a red prayer rug to a blue hijab, everyday colors are given special meaning as young readers learn about clothing, food, and other important elements of Islamic culture, with a young Muslim girl as a guide. Sure to inspire questions and observations about world religions and cultures, Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns is equally at home in a classroom reading circle as it is being read to a child on a parent's lap.

I'm atheist.

I live in a predominately Christian country where children are indoctrinated into Christianity from as early as 2 years old.
I want to raise an open minded child capable of choosing her own beliefs (or lack thereof)
To be able to do so I'd have to introduce her to all religions since they've began introducing her without my consent (and against my wishes)

This book is a great introduction to Islam for a 5 year old .
It came in excellent condition

My daughter is fascinated by it and can't wait for it to be read to her at bedtime.

I love this book of colors using Islamic imagery. We lived in the Middle East and the pictures remind us of our time there and the customs. Lovely illustrations. Highly recommend for Muslim families as well as those who want to broaden their understanding of other cultures/customs.

I loved reading this book to my students! They were so interested to learn about something they had never really heard of or experienced before. Celebrating different cultures and beliefs from an early age is so important. The illustrations in this book are BEAUTIFUL!

Really beautiful book. The colors are just beautiful. My kids love the fact that they are so many Islamic kids books out there "for them" I bought this several times for my kids' friends also. I suggest to all parents to add this book to your collection. It's always nice to add some Islamic kids books to their library. And also as gifts, as the parents & children will appreciate it very much :)

Lovely book. The illustrations are beautiful, the text is easy to understand, and it's a book you can share with all children. About a third of my class are Muslim children so this is a nice way to share their culture with the rest of the class without being too overtly religious.

This book has a lovely rhyme and even if some of the items are specific to certain Muslim cultures, like the Kufi hat her Grandpa wears, it has very traditional scenes and beautiful images in it! My son loves it and was so excited to go to the Mosque to give Zakat! Thank you for this lovely book, it was a great way to help my 2 year old feel the spirit this Ramadan!

This book is WONDERFUL. Beautiful illustrations, rhymes, and a quick read for your kiddos that want to read every book again and again. :-) Younger kids can learn new vocab too, like kufi, minaret, zakat, etc.
I just received this book today, I purchased it for my son and I love it! So does he! The illustrations are beautiful and it's a great easy read to keep children interested. I've already told my friends with kids that it's a must buy. For Muslim children and other than! I'm looking forward to more of henas books!
