Wardah Books

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!
