Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns by Hena Khan, Mehrdokht Amini | WaterstonesMy daughter loves it so much she read it every night since we got it. She really loves the illustration and the simple words yet with big messages. This book incorporates rhyming and bold color schemes to inform the reader about the muslim culture and colors. The young girl uses a fist person point of view to describe her country of Islam and her culture's, food, beliefs, and traditional head dress. I enjoyed this book because it strays away from the typical informational book.

Thank you! Here the basic colors, plus gold and silver, are used to explain aspects of Islamic life. The stylized illustrations, richly detailed, often play with the sizes of the objects in a surrealistic way. It is difficult to tell whether the family lives in the Middle East, Britain home of the artist or North America. The secular architecture looks Western, but the mosque looks very grand and Middle Eastern.
