Ramadan will be starting in a few days and it’s time to change out our coffee table books. I love leaving children’s books out on our table for guests.
Books on Ramadan were very scarce when I was a child, but luckily my own daughters will not have this problem. Especially now that self publishing is so large and so many multicultural authors have resources to self print in an industry that does not see them.
Over the past few months, I have been buying Ramadan books and gift wrapping them secretly at night. I will be using them as prizes for my girls who complete a full day of fasting. Children do not have to complete full days until they are more mature, but it’s good to get them into the habit young and I hope these books will help motivate them.
While the title does say 99 books, in my research for our own bookshelf, I have managed to find more and will be listing them all here alphabetically. If you are a visual person, please stop by our list of children books on A Crafty Arab on Pinterest where the covers are shown, or the Educational Resource page. Look for links to other book suggestions at the bottom of the post.
