We all love the Mr Men Series, right? Well, here’s the Islamic version!
These books are very similar in style and size, but the people in Dhikarville are all based on Islamic concepts from Salaam to Shukr! And there are two series… Brother and Little Sister – check out the photos for more info. Just FYI – not all of them are available yet.
P.S. They do merchandise too! Check out their FB page for more info –https://www.facebook.com/TalesFromDhikarville
The first of the series is Brother Salaam: “Take a tour of Dhikarville with Brother Salaam as he introduces all the Brothers to you, whilst teaching you about the importance of saying salaam along the way!”
As promised on facebook, in between series we shall have some book reviews inshallah!
Here is the first one: The Victory Boys (By Jamal Orme)
I particularly like this book because of its appeal to older children, especially boys – combining aspects of faith and secular life, the book tackles an everyday topic in our lives of whether we should stick things in boxes or make them work side-by-side.
Here is the blurb!
“Junayd and his friends think madrasa is a waste of time, and older brother Saleem is fast becoming the black sheep of the family. That is, until the Imam of the mosque initiates an extra-curricular project outside his comfort zone. But can faith and football flourish side-by-side?”
Has anyone read it already? If so, please share your thoughts! My 8 year old loved it
An interesting resource – Tafseer on Sura Fatiha for children:
Lovely to watch with our children – dream big!
