Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are key concepts for all ages to embrace. A to Z of Mini Muslims by Mariam Latifi is a perfect choice to introduce young children to Islam. Each letter of the alphabet highlights something special about Islam. Some of the words are very specific to Islam, like H is for Hajj and other letters use words that will be very familiar to all kids like N is for Neighbours. Latifi mentions the five pillars of Islam and talks about the lunar months. The illustrations also provide lots of information and include pictures of the Kabbah and step-by-step instructions for performing wudu (ritual washing). Latifi has also included a note to parents, a glossary, and discussion questions at the end.
A to Z of Mini Muslims is a unique and informative alphabet book. Young Muslims now have a book celebrating their religion. Children are full of questions, and if kids are not familiar with Islam, this serves as a great introduction for them. Mariam Latifi has filled each page with lots of facts but never in an overwhelming way. The illustrations by Saba Yasmeen are cheerful and full of Australian references. Each spread contains a wealth of information, from the foods depicted to the décor on the walls. As a non-Muslim adult, I learned many things. Diversity in our world is something kids need to embrace and engage with from a young age. A to Z of Mini Muslims presents Islam and the Muslims who practice it engagingly for both kids and adults.
