This is the start of a new picture book series by @maymunahsmusings and @prolancepublishing . Each book in the series will be about a name of Allah, and I absolutely love that idea! It is important in Islam to connect our kids to Allah and teach them to have a deep love for him more than anyone or anything else! ⠀ ⠀ The book is adorable and can be understood and enjoyed by children ages 4-8. The illustrations are so vibrant and beautiful and they bring the words to life perfectly.⠀ ⠀ The book starts with Maymunah having a question about how much Allah loves her. She asks her mother and she is told that Allah loves her more than...and a list starts with details about Allah’s creations like the raindrops from the sky and the blades of grass in their favorite picnic area.⠀ ⠀ At the end of the story, Maymunah realizes that the love Allah has for her is more than anything she can compare it to, even her own Mother’s love, and it leaves her feeling so happy and close to Allah. ⠀ ⠀ I love the diversity in the story! Maymunah is made of a mixed race family, and it makes me so happy to see it in the book, representing stories that have not been heard before. I also love her hair and how it is beautiful and big!⠀ ⠀ The book really does radiate love and warmth and my own daughter snuggled closer to me as I read it to her.⠀ ⠀ I did notice a few grammar issues, but they didn’t decrease from the quality of the book; I just adjusted the words as I read them to my kids.⠀
