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.
