Magnificently capturing the shapes of Islam, this acclaimed book that inspired curiosity and conversations about world religions and cultures is now available in paperback.
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.
