This book begins with a straightforward introduction, which, in two short paragraphs, explains what Islam is, who the key people in the stories are, and the distinction between “Islam” and “Muslim.” It is a little over 30 pages and is broken up into different sections such as “The Birth of the Prophet Muhammed,” “Moses Follows a Wise Man,” and “Ishmael.” Each is a simplified, yet accurate representation of an important Islamic story. I also appreciated the 'to learn more' section featured at the end, which points readers to other books and websites about not just Islam, but rather world religions in general.
