Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kris Sauer
Prejudice, despite our best efforts, is a persistent societal problem. Written for younger readers, this text helps students understand the issue, how to identify it, how it is manifested, why it develops, and what can be done about it. Part of a series that includes books focused on Asians, blacks, Hispanics, Jews, the LGBT community, Native North American Indians, and people with mental and physical challenges, this book highlights the issues and challenges Muslims in North America face, particularly in the aftermath of 9/11. The book offers a brief history of Islam, with a special section devoted to the difference between Arabs, Middle Easterners, and Muslims. Readers are introduced to Anan Ameri, an Arab Muslim instrumental in making the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, a reality. Two sisters, Assia and Iman, share their story as well, putting a very real face to the issues young Muslims confront daily in America and Canada. Balanced, the book does not shy away from the very real issue of terrorism and the role some (and the book takes pains to highlight "some") Muslims have played. Misunderstanding lies at the heart of prejudice—and sometimes even violence— against, Muslims in our community. While informative, this addition to the "Gallup Guides for Youth Facing Persistent Prejudice" series has some gaps. The Sunni and Shiite divisions in Islam are referenced but never explained, nor are some of the more visible traditions, such as head scarves for women. Students have an innate curiosity about the reasons behind unique traditions. Explaining some of the more obvious ones might have made this text even stronger for young readers. Questions for discussion, a bibliography, a glossary, and an index make this non-fiction text a good resource for a social studies, religion or world cultures unit. Reviewer: Kris Sauer
