Description


Magnificently capturing the colorful world of Islam for the youngest readers, this breathtaking and informative picture book celebrates Islam's beauty and traditions.

Sure to inspire questions and observations about world religions and cultures, Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns is equally at home in a classroom reading circle as it is being read to a child on a parent's lap.

Another one of my very favorite read-aloud books! I cherish this book, it’s truly a masterpiece: it is so beautifully crafted, and stands as a perfect example of how words and pictures can aid one another in superb storytelling! Our story is told by a local town cat, Muffin, who prowls the neighborhood each night, always on the lookout for anything strange that might require his investigative expertise…when, one night, bears show up at the bakery!?! Sounds like a job for Muffin!
