Bilal's Brilliant Bee
What a hilarious chapter book about a Muslim character!
Genre: Chapter book
Islamic screening: clean
Bilal has a difficult time at school! He just can’t seem to remember the answers for his test. When a buzzing bee flies into his room and gives him answers, he starts doing extremely well (the answers are HILARIOUS). Then, he actually gets to go on national television to a show no one has ever won before, all thanks to his bee. What happens when the bee doesn’t know an answer…will Bilal win??
Oh my goodness, I unearthed this gem on bookoutlet.com with the character having the name of a Muslim, and I am so glad I found it! It is so simple but oh so cute and funny, perfect for little readers!
Bilal’s Nanu wears hijab and desi food is mentioned as well!
A cute and funny story, no Islamic lessons, but a universal lesson of believing in yourself and being creative and inventive, even when tests at school are hard.
