The Books are Here

I got the Islamic Social Studies books from Noor Art and Islamic Bookstore. I am very happy with them.

The box for them is flimsy so I had to take them out but otherwise everything is all right. I like the supplementary book as well. I bought the first grade binder for now because these are pricey.

This one came with a world map and a poster of different Muslim cultures celebrating Eid.

InshaALLAH this will be of great benefit to us. It was very tough finding Islamic Social Studies books and fortunately these are for K-6. I want the kids to learn about the strides of Muslims and most books don't cover these things. For a moment, I was tempted to purchase from this publisher and adapt their social studies curriculum (Christian based?) to suit our needs.

I visit a few non-Muslim homeschool blogs and they seem to have the advantage of established Christian-based homeschool products to teach their children about Christian explorers and founding fathers, so why not us?
