10 Childrens Books to Read in Ramadan

10 Ramadan Childrens booksRegular followers of the blog will know that we are a family that likes to read. The girls have an ever growing collection of books and we have recently turned to Ramadan related books. I have already reviewed some of the Ramadan books we have:

Ramadan Rhymes
My First Ramadan
Rashad’s Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr

As I am running out of time to review all the books I want to before Ramadan, I thought a post sharing 10 of the books we will be reading throughout Ramadan would be ideal. Some of these books aren’t specifically relating to Ramadan but are useful in that they are educational and teach the children about Islam.

‘Ramadan is one of the most special months of the year – a time to pray, fast and help those in need. Sylvia Whitman’s lyrical story, with luminous illustrations by Sue Williams, serves as an introductions to Ramadan – a time for reflection and ritual with family and friends’.

  • Nice review! But what I see is a lack of books for younger age group in the same theme.

    Anyhow we had ordered somw of these to show on our ramadan reading shelf but unfortunately got lost in mail

    • My First Ramadan and Rashads Ramadan are both suitable for the younger children to read. There is a pretty extensive collection of books available but these are just ones we have and personally will be reading

  • Wow! This is quite a nice selection for young readers. I like the ‘Good night stories from the Quran’ with the camels on the title 🙂 I wish you and your family a blessed Ramadan time and your kids pleasure with those nice books. Linked that post in a group where recently somebody asked about Ramadan books for children.

  • Ma shaa Allah! What an amazing selection for young readers. As I reviewed this list and your brief descriptions I couldn’t help but think about how helpful and great these would have been when I was fasting for my first Ramadan. I know that many are geared or marketed for children but, so many of us reverts could utilize books like these to fully understand and make the most of our Ramadan. I especially like the Ramadan Diary, I’m going to search to see if I can locate it or something similar locally, since I’m not quite sure how I would receive something in KSA; given that the mail is so spotty. Thank you so much for sharing, I really appreciate it!

  • Thanks for this list! There are some new books here that I haven’t heard of. My daughter really likes the new Curious George Ramadan book as well. I feel like there is a lack of quality books for younger kids so I’ll definitely look into your list and see if she likes these!

  • All we have is Ramadan Moon – I ordered the Curious George book and haven’t received it yet. It has been out in the US for ages though which is annoying! I really want to get My First Quran next – this is super helpful for next year inshaAllah when Yusuf is older and will be able to read a lot more – bookmarking it 🙂 x

  • I’ve seen/ read most of these books via the school library but I have never come across Ameena’s Ramadan diary – will love to read it.

    In addition to reading to the young ones, I actually enjoy reading children’s books. The illustrations and easy-to-read texts usually pull me in. Plus there are simple everyday lessons to be picked up.

    Happy to see more titles being published for Muslim children.

  • These are good books to educate children about Ramadan and Islam in general. Glad to see that we have so many options nowadays 🙂
