Salaam Mindfulness Journal
Such a unique book, perfect in today’s age, when mental health issues in children and teens are on the rise!!
Genre: Graphic mini-novel
Available: my amazon page- www.amazon.com/shop/muslimmommyblog
This new release by @booksforlittlemuslims is absolutely fantastic!!
I love how it’s a mindfulness journal, but done in a completely Islamic way with ayahs and hadiths sprinkled everywhere! I also really liked how it was made in such an easy to read format, and included cute doodles, pictures, and notes for the kids to learn from.
The book includes 13 chapters that are based on emotions: afraid, angry, disappointed, Grief, jealous, lonely, overwhelmed, sad, shy, sorry, upset, worried, and grateful. I loved how these emotions were written on small tabs on the top of the book for the kids to refer to them easily.
Each chapter starts with a reminder, and a verse from the Quran to say, and then a two-page spread on what to do when the emotion is felt. The two page spread includes a checklist and then pictures detailing the checklist even more.
I genuinely feel like this would be really useful for children, especially those that struggle with a lot of emotions. I feel like the fact that it is based on authentic Islamic resources makes it so amazing to have on hand. Me and my children loved reading through it, and I feel like it can be pulled out anytime there are major tantrums or emotions for children to read and work through.
The authors note was really helpful in talking about how to implement the book until the Islamic mindfulness becomes a part of the children’s character.
And lastly I really loved how the book is called salaam, because peace of mind is really what we want for us and our kids
