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!
