Muslim Tree

My apologies for not posting much lately, especially in terms of reviews. That is because I have been working on the author interview for next month. I am happy to say that I had a great opportunity to interview the author of some well-known Muslim children’s and teenager’s books. So stay tuned and check back on the 1st of June when I announce all the happenings here on the blog.

In the meantime I want to share with you some really neat products I found at Muslim Tree. The company produces Islamic educational and motivational products such as posters, books, personal journals that can be used in the home, school or even weekend Islamic school. Magnets, place mats and calendars are also to be added to their collections.

There are only two books listed on the website; one about performing wudu and the other on how to pray. I have not seen the books in print, but from the preview on the website, I must say that I like that these books are written with rhyming sentences. It will not only make them fun to read and but make learning easier. What’s more customers can have the books personalised to include a child’s name in the title and in the story. This makes the books great to give as gifts or as prizes (for a teacher/school for example). I am looking forward to other books that this company has to offer in the future.

Rewards for Reading and other motivational material for Muslim children

Teachers, librarians and parents may find the following resources useful in getting their students/children motivated to learn Islam and to enjoy reading.

The Muslim Sticker Company provides a variety of stickers, charts, certificates and posters to motivate and reward children for performance (for example, memorization of Qur’an) and akhlaq (manners). Also available are badges and colouring books to help develop the young Muslim child’s identity. It would be nice to see this company expand its product range in the future to include pencils, pens and bookmarks as well.

Smilemakers provides a wide range of general motivational products to get children learning. I find their selection of pencils, bookmarks and stickers that promote reading and books to very appealing to children. Whether it is the classroom or home, reward children for reading and remind them of how wonderful reading is at the same time with these pencils, stickers and bookmarks. (Just type in the words “reading pencils” or “reading stickers” in the search box of the website to see a listing of the products available in the category.)
