Crescent Moons And Pointed Minarets: A Muslim Book Of Shapes

 

This informative shape-concept book captures the vibrant world of Islam. A rectangle is the mosque’s carved wooden door. A cube is the Kaaba where Muslims worship. A square is an orange garden. Many more shapes celebrate the traditions of the narrator’s faith. The short, rhyming text is supplemented by beautiful mixed media illustrations that are influenced by Islamic art. A glossary with pronunciations and an author’s note complete this introduction to the culture and religion. mjw
