Muslims in Story: Expanding Multicultural Understanding Through Children's and Young Adult Literature

Muslims in Story: Expanding Multicultural Understanding Through Children's and Young Adult Literature

$ 49.99

Islamophobia, a long standing, deeply entrenched global issue, disrupts civil society at many levels, from anti-Muslim policies to heightened tensions and hate crimes, including the increased bullying of Muslim children. One of the root causes of Islamophobia is ignorance, often fueled by stereotyped and negative portrayals of Muslims in media and popular culture.

Muslims in Story, written by KitaabWorld co-founders Gauri Manglik and Sadaf Siddique and published by ALA Editions is a timely and proactive approach to tackling this issue, by engendering friendships and empathy through quality children's and young adult literature. Exposing children in their formative years to positive stories about Muslims can go a long way to creating a multicultural understanding by cementing ideas of tolerance, respect, and acceptance. As a follow up from our Counter Islamophobia Through Stories campaign, this resource

This book will equip public and school library staff, including educators and collection development librarians, to make real change in their communities by validating lived experiences of Muslim kids and building a stronger sense of empathy, respect, and understanding towards Muslims.
