📚 BOOK REVIEW 📚
Title: Ahmed and the Very Stuck Teapot
Author: Sarah Musa @sarahmusawrites
Illustrator: Rania Hassan
Publisher: Ruqaya's Bookshelf @ruqayas.bookshelf
Islamic Content: Kindness, care
Ahmed's kite just got torn when his kite crashed into the bushes while he was practicing for the annual kite-flying competition. While running to the market for a new kite before thy closed, they cross paths with a calf in distress: her hoof got stuck in a teapot. Ahmed is now in a deep dilemma, should he run to purchase a new kite or help the lost calf in this unfortunate situation? If he helped, he is risking his chance of participating this competition.
This wonderful story teaches the readers so many valuable lessons intertwined within it. I loved seeing that Ahmad and his friend Tariq have completely different personalities. While Ahmed showed concern about the calf, Tariq's mind was focused on the competition. And when Ahmed stuck around to find help for the calf, Tariq decided to go home and practice more. It captures so beautifully that your acts of kindness come around when you least expect it. I love books that show the readers the important message rather than telling them, and this was definitely one of them. Furthermore, Ahmed silently seeks Allah's help to resolve his little dilemma. In the end, everything comes together perfectly. Another book by @ruqayas.bookshelf that will not disappoint.
