Blogging about and sharing children's books.
I’ve just finished ‘Crescent Moons and Pointed Minarets’ courtesy of @chroniclebooks.
It is a great book which ties together elements and symbols of Islam with mathematical shapes. For example, octagon is the pool in which to wash for Wudu, circle is a daff and hexagon is a tile painted with an ayah.
his would be a great book to share with younger children who are learning about shapes in maths and/or about Islam in RE. Applause to the ingenuity of its author Hena Khan.
