By Hena Khan, Illustrated by Mehrdokht Amini, Chronicle Books, Hardback, 32 pages
From a crescent moon to a square garden to an octagonal fountain, this breathtaking picture book celebrates the shapes and traditions of the Muslim world.
With stunning illustrations, a rhyming read-aloud text, and strong backmatter, Crescent Moons and Pointed Minarets will inspire questions and observations about world religions and cultures and is equally at home in a classroom reading circle as it is being read to a child on a parent's lap.
