Wardah Books

Sunday, May 23, 2010

There's a lovely little bookstore called Wardah Books near the Sultan Mosque in Singapore. Wardah Books "is an independent bookstore specialising in Sufism and Islamic philosophy." They "carry a spectrum of titles ranging from children's books to Prophetic sirah and translations of the Qur'an; from history to the latest nasyeed."

I walked into Wardah Books and made a beeline for the children's books.

The store clerk was very nice and he helped me choose these titles:

The Best Eid Ever, written by Asma Mobin-Uddin and illustrated by Laura Jacobsen (Boyds Mills Press, 2007)
The Boy Without A Name, written by Idries Shah and illustrated by Mona Caron (Hoopoe Books, 2007)

Night of the Moon: A Muslim Holiday Story, written by Hena Khan and illustrated by Julie Paschkis (Chronicle Books, 2008)

Looking forward to visiting Wardah Books again next year!

The cover for "The Boy Without a Name" is absolutely gorgeous.

Hi, de Pizan. :o) Yes, it is! It's enough to make one swoon!

oH, I wonder if my book was there, "Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes: Stories and Songs to Share", Tuttle publishing, April , 2010. It's a book of traditional Chinese rhymes paired with similar rhymes in English, with pinyin pronunciation, and a cd of kids singing the rhymes in both languages.
