A Great Friend of Children is a collection of eight stories from the life of the Prophet Muhammad (blessings of Allah and peace be upon him) illustrating the love and kindness that he showed towards little children. A man who was busy changing the course of human history was, at the same time, free enough to mingle with and love the children — a captivating aspect of the greatest of human life stories.
Colorful Illustrations. Recommended for ages: (7-11)
THE MUSLIM CHILDREN’S LIBRARY aims to provide young readers with something rarely found in current children’s literature; meaning in life, paths to an integrated development of personality, vistas into a world extending beyond this life. A Muslim child especially, can develop a fresh faith, a dynamic commitment, a strong identity, and a throbbing yearning and urge to struggle — all rooted in Islam.
At the same time the books are designed to be a joy to read, to hold a child’s attention and curiosity, and to increase his knowledge. Both texts and general supplementary readings are included. Each title (more than 40 titles have so far been published) is prepared for a particular group but, we hope, may find favor with all.
