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 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.
