Muslim characters, people and culture

It is important to me that all students at my school find books in the library with characters with whom they can identify.  We have quite a Muslim students.  So, I’m always on the hunt for books with Muslim characters or themes.  I’ve read quite a few and am happy to say that my students have really loved the books I’ve found.  You’ll find those books on this page.  If you see a link, I have completed my blog article on the book.
