Alhamdillilah, Ramadan is quickly approaching! It has been a goal of mine to provide my children with as many books about Ramadan as possible! Each year I add to our Ramadan library so in this post I will break down what books we have about Ramadan plus what books I intent to purchase for this Ramadan! I love reading Ramadan book to my children each day of Ramadan and want to share that joy with you!
Kids Books about Ramadan, that we currently have and love
- My First Ramadan
This is the very first book I bought for my daughter on her first Ramadan and we have read it each and every Ramadan!
- It’s Ramadan Curious George!
I love Curious George and adore that they’ve made a book about Ramadan for kids Muslim and non-Muslim alike. Also, a friend read this at her daughter’s elementary school and another friend read it at a local library last year for Ramadan!
- 30 Days of Learning and Good Deeds (Islamic Books for Kids)
This book has a mini-lesson for you to do with your kids each day of Ramadan. It focuses on a good deed to implement that day, Islamic knowledge, and I believe a Quran verse to go over! We really enjoyed it last Ramadan and I will most definitely re-read it for several Ramadans, inchAllah, while my kids are growing up!
- Ramadan and Fasting Activity Book
We went through this activity and sticker book last Ramadan. I honestly didn’t do any of the activities since I was working last Ramadan but our children and their nanny seemed to enjoy it!
- Ilyas & Duck – Ramadan Joy!
I really love all of the Ilyas & Duck stories! I find that their books are well written and teach the children wonderful values!
- Ramadan Moon
This books emphasis is on the Ramadan Moon! We read through it a couple of times last year and the kids enjoyed the story line!
Kids Books about Ramadan that we intent to buy this year!
- Ramadan Around the World
We use the author’s Arabic learning materials (I will write a review on these items later) and love them. So this Ramadan I want to ensure that I support her by purchasing Ramadan around the world! My friend’s children have this book and love it! She even said they read it all year!
- Rami the Ramadan Cat
This is stocked through Ruqaya’s Bookshelf, a female owned virtual bookstore! I really want to support smaller Muslimah owned shops this Ramadan so I am super excited to support her vision + books!
- Who Will Help Me Make Iftar?
Another book that is on Ruqaya’s Bookshelf! A story about who will help make Iftar!
- Lailah’s Lunchbox
- Under the Ramadan Moon
We checked this out last year from the library and I really loved it so I will hopefully, inchAllah buy it this year before Ramadan begins!
So there you have it, here are all the books we have about Ramadan + the books we intend to buy this Ramadan. I usually rent books from the library but I really enjoy supporting Muslim authors! I think as Muslim parents we should all expose our children to books about Islam + support our beautiful and brilliant authors!
I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful!
