Having a coloring book after reading the novel made it a lot more fun!
Inaya Niazi, 12
If you like the idea of giving your child a coloring book with zero outlines of people or animals to color in, this is for you!
While coloring in a bird’s eye view of the Kaba, oceanside scenes, motifs depicting seasonal change, outlines of lush flora, Muslim home interiors, and discovering — in the process — some of Allah’s beautiful names subtly written in Arabic, children will increase their ability to focus and concentrate.
They will develop their hand / eye coordination, too! Insha’ Allah.
About 39 pages including story.
