Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns: A Muslim Book of Colors
(Chronicle Books LLC July 20, 2012)
, Reprint Edition
Magnificently capturing the colorful world of Islam for the youngest readers, this breathtaking and informative picture book celebrates Islam's beauty and traditions. From a red prayer rug to a blue hijab, everyday colors are given special meaning as young readers learn about clothing, food, and other important elements of Islamic culture, with a young Muslim girl as a guide. Sure to inspire questions and observations about world religions and cultures, Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns is equally at home in a classroom reading circle as it is being read to a child on a parent's lap. Plus, this is a fixed-format version of the book, which looks nearly identical to the print version.
