Reviews
"Exquisite, colorful mixed-media illustrations depict a setting that could be Iran (Amini's ancestral homeland) and showcase the aesthetics of Islamic art, from textile patterns to architectural ornamentation. This concept book compliments the creators' Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns (2012) and Crescent Moons and Pointed Minarets (2018), about colors and shapes, respectively. . . . A creative, fun introduction to Islam."-Kirkus Reviews
"[Hena Khan and Mehrdokht Amini] do a remarkable job of depicting the blending of the past to the present. . . . [One Sun and Countless Stars is] an introduction to the Islamic faith that serves its community and newcomers well; with its personal observations, rhyming text, and detailed illustrations, it would make a unique read-aloud and a significant addition to any library collection."-School Library Journal, starred review
