This collection of stories introduces children to the prophets of Islam. The vignettes begin with Creation and Adam and proceed through history to Mohammad. Each story highlights the influence of Allah on the growth and development of Islam and the role that the prophets played in carrying out his work.
The stories are short and easy to understand. They are meant to be read aloud and to provide opportunities to teach young children about the founders of their faith. Every vignette is accompanied by a drawing related to the story which can be colored in by the reader. The work appears to be an excellent tool to engage young Islamic children in learning about their faith.
None. The book is all that it purports to be.
My Little Lore of Light is basically about the prophets. I really liked this book because it was educational but not in a boring way. Even though I know a lot about Islam this book taught me many new things. I would recommend to first through sixth graders. This is a book that should definitely be sold at bookstores and should also be at the library. Some people would buy this book as a gift for their daughter/son or even friends.
Although written for Muslim children, many of the personalities and events recounted in the stories will be familiar to Jews and Christians, since they are also a part of the Judeo-Christian heritage found in the Old Testament.
This is a children's version of the author's four-volume work, Lore of Light, Stories of the Prophets from Adam to Mohammad.
The 34 chapters in the book are structured in a way that will pique the imagination of young listeners/readers and maximize the opportunity for questions.
