It would also make a great tool for teachers and parents to introduce all children to the principles of the faith. It’s underpinned by a warm message of inclusivity – “we don't all look the same”, Muslims are “different colours, shapes and sizes” – and accompanied by soft, fuzzy illustrations of all kinds of toddlers enjoying each others company in harmony and a spirit of kindness.

lovely little book which I think would be perfect for Muslim families starting to talk to little ones about their faith. Also useful as a starting point for preschools or nurseries who are exploring faith with children. Simple and interesting pictures and easy to follow. My three year old liked looking at it and my seven-year-old read it with us and had lots of questions afterwards!
