13 Top Books for Muslim Children

literacy map

The literacy rate for Muslim countries is not very high. Click on the map for a larger view - the dark blue indicates a high literacy rate and the dark brown a pathetic literacy rate. If you are geographically savvy you will note that most Muslim countries have low literacy rates.

Of course, many Muslims who do know how to read, sadly read only the Qur'an and no other book. After all, if it's not in the Qur'an it's not from Allah and so cannot be important. Sadly in these cases literacy means nothing since knowing only one book is practically equivalent to being illiterate.

So I was thrilled to come across this list of 13 new book titles for Muslim children. Hopefully if they read something other than the Qur'an there is the slightest possibility that they won't blow up grow up to be ignorant Jihadists.

  1. "We Are People of God and Jews are Not."
  2. "My Four Mommies and Me."
  3. "A Camel too Far"
  4. Filipino Muslim children show hand signs for peace as they march in suburban Bicutan, south of Manila, Sunday, Jan. 20, 2008.
