Golden Domes and Silver Laterns is so well written, and the illustrations are stunning. Hena Khan does a wonderful job of bringing simple concepts to extraordinary life. We cannot wait for her next book!!
My 10 month old literally smiles and squeals with delight when I pull this book out to read. The illustrations are large and beautiful and I love to see the smile on his face as we turn each page. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with a child who you're trying to foster the love of reading. No matter what their religion, this is a must have for any young library.
Love the book. It introduces simple aspects of Muslims believes with lovely drawings and easy rhyming words. I think it is a great book to introduce our kids to the Muslim culture and traditions.
This book is absolutely amazing! Both my kids, ages 9 and 5, enjoy reading this book. The concept is phenomenal and the illustrations are amazing and this is a MUST for any library. I can't wait to read Hena's next book.
My 2 yr old daughter adores this book. She points to the colors as i read. It is illustrated perfectly and the rhyming couplets create a nice flow which encourage her to chime in. Highly recommend!
A beautiful celebration of life that explores some of the colors, shapes and textures of Muslim civilization. The illustrations are vibrant and rich and the words flow like poetry. Hena Khan has done it again with a masterfully written children's book that is accessible, informative and breathtaking.
Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns is a beautifully written and illustrated book. Cultural concepts are portrayed in simple, easy to understand terms, but more important are the emotion and human experience that really come through to readers of all ages. This book has become a favorite of my preschooler AND my middle schooler. I also bought copies for my childrens' school library!
