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.

The illustrations in this book are beautiful and the colors so vibrant. The rhymes are so fun to read. I docked a star for instances of incorrectly depicting how one is supposed to be dressed whilst praying/reading the Qur'an.

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!
