This heirloom picture book celebrates Muslim religion and culture through sumptuous jewel—toned illustrations that complement a gentle narrative intended to teach Islamic vocabulary by associating key terms with specific colors. Glossary.

I really enjoyed this book for 2 main reasons. The first reason was the illustrations. Since this is a book about colors, the illustrations and the colors used in this book are expected to live up to its category. In particular, I liked the colors. I really enjoyed how the background would typically be a dull grayish shade on each page so that the specific chosen color would pop and be extra vibrant when present. For example, the page leading up to the page about red is relatively dull however the page about red is covered with a rich red color as it fills every inch of the page. The next reason I enjoyed this book was that it pushed the readers to broaden their perspectives. Through reading this book, the readers were able to learn a lot about the Muslim culture as it consisted of references about Eid, clothing, religion, and even food! For example, the page about blue says, “Blue is the hijab mom likes to wear. It’s a scarf she uses to cover her hair”. Although some readers might have seen a hijab in person, they may be unknowledgeable about the term hijab or what the purpose is for. The book allows the reader to learn bits and pieces of the Muslim culture that they may have not already known. The message of the book is also quite beautiful. I believe the message is just to spread awareness and understanding of the Muslim culture. The last page wrapped up the story and awareness best as it said, “All of the colorful things we’ve seen make up the world of my faith, my deen”. ( )

Top 100 pick because:

Wonderful collection of basic concepts, introduction to different cultures/religions/words (or finally a book that reflects your culture/religion). Bright colors used to portray each color described, cleverly blends the color with the cultural reference/word while always in rhyme. I remember seeing the cover at other libraries before, but I never read it. I'm quite pleased with myself now for having done so. I would like this to be one of my upcoming story time books when I focus on colors again. ( )

I really enjoyed this book for several reasons. One, the illustrator used beautiful paper-like material and colored pencil styled for the pictures throughout the book that engaged me in the reading as well as helped me to understand the text better. For example, each page had the focal point on one side with the whole scene on the other, making it clear what the text was describing. All the illustrations contain a texture that makes the reader feel as though they are right there in the story due to it looking realistic. Another reason I liked this book is that it is informative about important aspects in the Muslim culture, yet engaging for a reader because there is some rhyming in the text and the illustrations draw you into the story. For example, it begins with “Red is the rug Dad kneels on to pray, facing toward Mecca, five times a day,” with pray and day rhyming and the whole page displaying a deep red and intricate gold, orange, and yellow pattern of a prayer rug. Finally, the end of the book contains a glossary of all the important words that were on each page with more detail. The book itself does well in explaining the words in the text they give, but if a reader needs to know more to understand, it is available in the back of the book in alphabetical order. ( )

In my opinion, this is a great book. I enjoyed this book because I liked the culture that was included throughout the text. For example the association with the Muslim culture items to colors, “Red is the rug my Dad kneels on to pray, facing towards Mecca, five times a day.” I also liked it because every page rhymes. “Black is the ink I use to draw the Arabic letters that spell Allah.” The big picture of this book is the way to associate colors with different items throughout one's culture.
