Islam by Suma Din

This series looks at the journey of life as seen by members of the six world religions: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism. Each title focuses on the significant events of birth, coming of age, marriage and death in the religion, using contemporary case studies from around the world. Questions and activities encourage readers to reflect on their own experiences, and are a starting point for discussion and activities about key concepts in religion and citizenship. The emphasis is on what it's like to be religious and the meaning of religion in children's and adult's lives.


A lot of information about the religion is given in this relitively short book through the text and superb photographs. RE Today

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
