Books play a major role in my life as I have always been taught that education gives you freedom.
I love gathering books from different locations I’ve visited and using them in my sessions as an Arab storyteller. My Instagram feed shows some of my collection under #CraftyArabStorytelling.
In the meantime, my list of books for Muslim children in my Amazon Associates shop grew to close to 150 books. (I do get paid fees for being an associate and use them to buy tutorial materials, fyi). It’s now time to put it in an easy to read list for anyone to use.
So without future ado, I present the list of 99 Muslim children books. Authors with an * next to their name have more then one book published, please check here for other books by them.
