The Story of Bilal, The First Muezzin

Title: Call to Prayer, The Story of Bilal
Author: Edoardo Albert
Illustrator: Angela Desira
Publisher: The Islamic Foundation
Recommended for: 7-11 years old

This is the story of a young and inquisitive boy, Saeed, who engages Bilal, the first Muezzin of Islam, in conversation about his Call to prayer and his days with the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Beautifully narrated and illustrated in full colour.

There are so many lessons to learn from the lives of Prophet Muhammad (s) and his companions (r). We don't have to look far to learn that under the Prophet's leadership, there was no racism. Bilal ibn Rabah is an example of this.

Eid Breakfast at Abuela's Book Review

Title: Eid Breakfast at Abuela's
Author: Mariam Saad
Illustrator: Chaymaa Sobhy
Publisher: Prolance Publishing
Recommended for: 4-6 year old

Join Sofia and her mom and dad who spend Eid - the Islamic holiday celebrating the end of Ramadan - with her Mexican grandmother, who is not Muslim but chooses to throw them a festive breakfast which includes traditional Mexican food, decorations, and activities.

The book includes many Spanish words and a glossary as well to introduce the reader to simple words in Spanish and even Arabic.

If you're looking for an Eid story to read to children then this one is a little different. This is a heartwarming story of family not just about Eid only. It's about a little Muslim girl, Sofia, who spends Eid with her parents as well as her non-Muslim grandmother and cousins. It shows how we can celebrate Eid and be with relatives who are not Muslims.
