Book Review: Islamic Children’s books by Education Enriched
I’m a lover of Islamicbooks for kids. Being a parent I’ve always kept my eyes peeled for new books. When I first saw these, I knew i had to have them.
The first in the collection is ‘The young man’s plan’ it’s a retelling of the story of Umar ibn ul-khattaab.
The second is ‘Ka’bs big decision’ a story about Allahs forgiveness and lastly ‘The Prophets faithful friend’ none other than Abu Bakr as-siddeeq. (May Allah be pleased with them all).
All three of these are by education enriched and are must haves. They’re all written in rhyme, flow well and easy to follow.
I normally stay away from books that have faceless illustrations, most times they just don’t look right. However, this illustrator has done a brilliant job. The Illustrator has drawn people from angles that you can’t see the face in the first place, hence it doesn’t look odd at all.
I liked that, inside each book there is a disclaimer. Noting the storybook illustrations are not intended to be accurate depictions of the companions. Nor has the Prophet Muhammed (May Allah’s peace and blessing be upon him) been depicted in any form.
These books have been read over and over again, specially by my eldest three children aged 10, 8 and 6 years old. Islamic education is important to me and there’s nothing better than to have these to use alongside their studies. These are suitable for KS1 and KS2 Islamic curriculum.
I also have the workbook for ‘The Young Man’s Plan. It contains fun activities like word searches, colouring pages, mazes and more. All based on the story.
