Poetry for Muslim children

There is an endless variety of poetry selections available to our children in bookstores, school and public libraries. And while they may enjoy reading and learning from these poems we, as Muslim parents and teachers, want our children to read and learn from poetry that contain themes, images and references to Muslims and the Islamic way of life. We want our children to read poems by and about Muslims.

Check out these websites for some great poetry for Muslim children:
