My First Book of Dua might seem a bit heavy to carry around for a seven year old, but its beautiful cover with lovely illustrations might certainly attract any child of seven years and above to read it! This is a delightful book for children, which they may call their very own! Written with young hearts in mind, this short, easy-to-read book is a wonderful way to introduce children to the prayers from the Quran and the Hadith.
My First Book of Dua helps children to learn to remember and thank God in a way that is meaningful and charming. This is a bright and appealing collection designed to be used at home or at school. With bright and colourful illustrations, this book can encourage kids to explore their own ways of praying.
The best prayers are often the ones we say naturally, when we are happy, excited or sad about something. But at that time, we do not always find the right words to express our inner feelings. Reading these prayers from the Quran, children might be able to find appropriate words and phrases to pray with, at any time and in different situations. In that way, they can find themselves closer to God, as if they were whispering to Him. Then it will be an exchange between them and the Almighty.
This book is packed with excellent illustrations, and the quality of printing is superb. However, the book could certainly have done with more careful proof-reading so as to avoid spelling errors.
