Such a lovely expression of faith though shapes, the illustrations are richly colored and engaging.

Richly colored illustrations teach little ones about geometry by pairing them with images important to the Muslim faith. Educational on two fronts for readers of all faiths! An end glossary and pronunciation guide along with an author's note on the use of geometry and shapes in Islamic art and architecture helps readers learn more.

A beautifully illustrated book for younger readers that explains the significance of various shapes in Islamic culture. I like how the illustrator tried to show the variety of different Muslims from around the world.

Crescent is the moon, brilliant in the sky. It whispers salaam as the day passes by.

So much beauty in the shapes that I see adds to my faith and the world around me.

This is beautiful!! It includes helpful glossary and insightful author's note.

I enjoyed the shapes included in this book; they are much different than traditional shape books and therefore helps it stand apart. The illustration is lovely, though it was sometimes difficult to identify which shape was being described.
