Understanding Islam through Stories and Poems

Rukhsana Khan

Patty Gallinger

Plot Summary
This insightful collection of stories and poems is a child-centered introduction to Islam. In one story, a boy feels guilty when he short-changes his prayer. In another story, a girl buys candy she can't eat because it contains pork by-products. And in yet another story, a non-Muslim boy thinks there is a ghost wandering around town because he keeps glimpsing a figure in flowing black robes. Each of the eight stories, often using humor, deals with a major aspect of Islam. Nonfiction sidebars explain the Arabic words and religious terminology.

"...teachers, librarians, group leaders, and parents will find this a very useful resource." Kirkus Reviews

"The child's-eye view substantially increases the likelihood that non-Muslim readers will be able to internalize and understand what the protagonists are feeling and thinking, even if the religious basis of those thoughts and emotions is unfamiliar." School Library Journal
