Muslim Books Published in 2020
We are so excited to see so many talented Muslim authors and Muslim Publishers working so hard to bring our kids amazing resources and books that they can see themselves in.
We are so appreciative of all the hard work that goes into making these books, so we decided to recognize all the amazing titles published this year that we personally read and/or reviewed!
We do recognize that there are many more books out there, but we only share those that we have personally screened Islamically and approved of!
My list is divided by age groups. Swipe to see the pictures of these books!
