Do you sigh in relief when you see a book in your child’s hands? You’re thankful your child is off-screen and engaged in something beneficial, but do you know what your child is reading? 

Reading is crucial, beneficial, and instrumental in the lives of our children, but what they’re reading matters. Words matter. Words build worlds. What world is being built for your child?

Mindful Muslim Reader is a new community resource that helps parents and educators find the best books for their children. We recommend books that help shape your child’s moral worldview.

Learn why reading is essential for Muslim children and how to select books for your children that nurture their intellect and safeguard their emotions.

This story night is hosted in collaboration with Mindful Muslim Reader.
