Synopsis

Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns by Hena Khan

With breathtaking illustrations and informative text, GOLDEN DOMES AND SILVER LANTERNS magnificently captures the world of Islam, celebrating its beauty and traditions for even the youngest readers. From a red prayer rug to a blue hijab, readers will learn about a different color of the Muslim world on each spread with a young Muslim girl and her family as a guide. Sure to inspire questions and observations about world religions and cultures, it is equally at home in a classroom reading circle as it is being read to a child on a parent's lap.
