The Full Story
My name is Shifa Saltagi Safadi. I am a mother to four wonderful children, who were the inspiration behind this blog.
I have always loved to read and write, (I have a binder full of poems and stories that I wrote when I was age 7 and up), but when I became a mother, I found I was also passionate about reading Islamic books to my children and playing crafts with them. It gave me an opportunity to spend quality time with them, while also bringing up important issues in the stories that we otherwise might not have thought to discuss with each other.
Muslim representation in books is super important to me. I love authenticity and books that encourage Muslim kids to be proud of their identity. I also note flags and screenings for Muslim readers to be aware of for each category of books I review.
I hope you enjoy reading my honest book reviews, checking out the Islamic products I love to use, and using my free printables!
Check out the blog and use the search option for detailed reviews. The blog also contains divisions of the age groups of books, whether Board Books, Picture Books, Advanced PB, Mg, Upper MG, and YA/teen books.
Update: As of May 2020, I have become a Children's Book Author! I am so excited and I hope this is a benefit to all Muslim Kids!
You can find my book "Spell it Like Samar" at Ruqaya's Bookshelf: https://ruqayasbookshelf.com
May Allah bless all our children and let them be among the most righteous people.
