Our Top 5 Childrens Islamic Books of 2018

In 2016 I started sharing a round up of our favourite books of that year. Read about our  Top 15 Favourite Islamic Childrens Books in 2015 and also our Top 10 Islamic Childrens Books of 2017.

Now it is the time for our favourite books of 2018! We haven’t purchased as many this year as we already have an extensive library of Islamic childrens books at home so it is just our top 5 this year.

Please note a lot of the books were sent to us for review. However they would not be included in this list if I genuinely did not like them. This post also contain affiliate links.
