Two Pigeons on a Pilgrimage
Genre: Picture Book⠀
Price: 10 usd⠀
Islamic notes: mentions the steps of Hajj⠀
This book is so adorable! My kids are obsessed with birds, especially the young ones, and so this book really held their attention as they watched the two cute little birds fly over the Hajj pilgrims and join them in their pilgrimage. ⠀
The book is beautifully illustrated, with vibrant colors for little ones. I love how the steps of Hajj are shown and the birds are shown to copy the actions of the Hujjaj. This sparked my kids to ask me more about animals/birds and their relationship to the Creator, and how they worship Allah in their own special way.⠀
The book is written in beautiful lyrical rhymes, and the verses short and concise enough for kids to understand.⠀
My favorite part: I love how the ending had activities, matchings games, and full diagrams for the kids about Hajj and I feel like these will help children connect more with the text and learn more about Hajj. There is also a glossary for defining hajj words at the end! This was close to 10 pages of extra fun! Perfect for all types of learners❤️
Such a beautiful Hajj book and definitely one of our new favorites!
