Praise

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, September 1, 2013:
“Poetic language, attractive illustrations and a positive message about Islam, without any didacticism: a wonderful combination.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, September 9, 2013:
“The warm, affirming portrait of Islam makes this a valuable resource for both Muslim audiences and a broader readership interested in potentially unfamiliar customs and observances of faith.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, November 2013:
“This book incorporates authentic cultural details in both the poetic text and the evocative illustrations… [A] lovely original story.”

Starred Review, Booklist, November 15, 2013:
“The women, all individualized, exude true warmth, and readers will feel a quiet satisfaction when Lalla joins them. A special offering.”
