  1. I see many good books on this list, but I would not recommend Hibibi at all – her mother is non Muslim and father is non practicing. She doesn’t understand what her grandmother is doing when she sees her praying. Her mother helps her meet her Israeli boyfriend keeping it secret from the father who would not approve.
    Sofia’s journal, on the other hand, is one of the best written books for 5-7th grade, a historical novel set in Kansas when it was deciding whether to be a slave state or not.
    Check out the list on for a long list of recommended books.

    • Many of the books on here I too would not recommend. Habibi is one I get asked about a lot, that is why at some point I do plan to read it and review it inshaAllah. Thank you for your support, feel free to suggests books you think I should read 🙂

  2. Zak and his good intentions is an excellent book. I like books which show how a family should function and this is an example of how one family does, while Zak and his sister compete to do as many good deeds in one day as they can.

  3. Assalamu alaykum.

    Just came accross one of these books at the indigo display table and noticed one of the girls with hijab. Maybe have a look…

    Girls Who Code by Reshma Saujani

  4. Assalamu alaikum warahmatullah. I’d love to know what these books are like if you come across them. I haven’t seen any reviews or anything showing the inside. Both are board books from the same series by Noor H. Dee:

    I Say Alhamdulillah
    I Say Bismillah
