loved the vocab that was included in the book!
As a Catholic wanting to teach my children about other faiths and backgrounds, I was drawn first to the gorgeous illustrations on each page, and then fell in love with the simple poems that describe the beauty of Islam. My children love this book, and it is in regular rotation on our bedtime reads.
