Request a Book Review

Intention

With this page, our intention, above all, is to please Allah (swt). We pray that He accepts our efforts for contributing to the education of our kids in His path. Ameen.

 

Our goal is to highlight Muslim Kid Lit by posting book reviews in order to give the parents/teachers the opportunity to make informed decisions when purchasing for their bookshelves.

What do we focus on?

We focus on children's books that involve one OR all of the following:

  1. Islamic books

  2. Muslim books

  3. Positive messages/lessons that are acceptable Islamically (kindness, sharing, diversity etc) through Muslim characters

  4. The accurate representation of Muslims and their families in KidLit


Our reviews are looked at from a conservative/orthodox Islamic perspective (Qur'an and Sunnah) even if the books aren't focusing directly on promoting Islamic content. In addition, we look at the quality of illustrations, language, kid-friendly text, the storyline and overall relatability (emotional and otherwise).

Conditions

  1. Sending a copy of your book will not guarantee a review on the blog or social media platforms. This is the risk.   

  2. We do not accept payment in exchange for a review.

  3. If the book promotes offensive, problematic or unislamic values, it is not the right one for this platform and audience. If this is discovered after I have received and read the book, it will not be featured on my platform.

  4. Self-published books: if a professional editor was not consulted or illustrations are not done by a professional, it does not qualify for a review.

  5. We will not review books that have been written or illustrated by a child.

  6. Only submissions that are the right fit will receive an e-mail response within 7 days.

  7. If your book does not get featured or the review is not what you anticipated, book returns are not a feasible option.

 

Prior to sending in a request, we highly encourage you to become familiar with our previous reviews to get an idea of what we look for.


We ask Allah, the Almighty, to help us and guide us to be just and true in our efforts. Ameen.
