Reviews

In My Mosque draws readers into the Muslim house of worship to show how it is so much more than a place to pray. . . Aly's (The Proudest Blue, 2019) illustrations echo the warmth of Yuksel's text, depicting loving, happy communities, rich in diversity of all sorts. The striking use of geometric patterns found in Islamic art and architecture might inspire classroom art projects to complement a narrative study of houses of worship.--Booklist
Joyful characters describe what happens in simple, poetic language. Both a celebration of and an introduction to the mosque.
--Kirkus Reviews
This marvelous, welcoming book on mosques, Muslims, and Islam is a must, offering foundational knowledge on the world's second largest religion.--School Library Journal (starred review)
