This is the review of the most adorable book about the concept of God’s Existence
“Ilyas and Duck Search for Allah”
Written by Omar S. Khawaja
Illustrated By Leo Antolini
Publisher : LBK Books, USA
This book is definitely written with a child in mind or I can say This is such a Child-friendly Book. Ilyas asks a question that many children ask, “Where is Allah (God)?” Children are curious by nature and they learn through using all five of their senses, so it is no wonder that they want to “see” God in order to know where He is.
They search for Him in the sky, up a tall mountain, down in the deep ocean, in the dark rainforest, and in outer space. They soon learn that Allah can’t be seen with his eyes, but, He can be seen through his creation.
In my Opinion, This is such a great book! It is the best for young ones who are not understanding their faith or have questions about their Creator! The book describes with minimal words that so easy to read and fun, bright pictures that so awesome and cute. The perfect book to help little ones understand the most important thing in life! That’s the concept of God’s Existence.
Moreover This book is also got the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards 2014 (Silver) in the genre of Religion / Spirituality. I think it’s really deserve it !
For the price, it’s around $16.99 (it’s quite pricey for me T-T) but when comparing what we got from this book is really worth to buy and spend time to read it with your child. I would like to recommend this book to every muslim family for sure inshaAllah.
***Score : 9.5 / 10 Really love it ! So adorable and lively !***
