Little explorers: The Muslim kid's magazine

LE is a children’s magazine which is published every other month to stimulate the young minds of our children as well as teach them the true teachings of Islam in a fun and interactive way. http://www.littleexplorersmagazine.co.uk/
According to the LE team, the purpose of the magazine is to nurture our children into good Muslim citizens who make a positive contribution to the society in which they live.
Alhamdulillah I have been reading this beautiful magazine with my children since Ramadan 2010. When I received the first issue, I was quite impressed by the quality. At that time, my son was only two and a half years old and my daughter was 15 months but they enjoyed flipping through the magazine! I love the way the images are done mashallah! It just shows that we can indeed create an interesting magazine for children without images with eyes. In 18 months, the content of the magazine has almost doubled. Now it has more articles and activities. My children really love reading the magazine with me. We are really lucky to have Little Explorers for our precious children.
It is very important for our children to read magazines which they can relate to. I would highly recommend this magazine to all parents home and abroad insha-Allah. Trust me you won’t regret subscribing to this wonderful magazine for your precious ones insha-Allah! May Allah swt reward the team behind this wonderful project, ameen.

Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes and how she came to tell them

The book is attractively presented, with good quality binding on the hardback edition and well printed colour plates. You certainly will feel that this is a book your child will be able to grow up with and pass on to his or her own offspring as a treasured heirloom insha-Allah.
Teaching three young goslings how to swim, fly and waddle nicely isn’t easy. Boo, Lucy and small would much rather play games, chase butterflies or splash about in puddles. So in between lessons, Mother Goose starts to tell them rhymes- happy rhymes, sad rhymes and silly rhymes, rhymes for waddling in time, rhymes for flapping their wings and rhymes to lull them asleep. Now all Mother Goose’s rhymes have been gathered together in one beautiful volume for everyone to enjoy. The exquisite illustrations by the brilliant Axel Scheffler make this uniquely fresh and entertaining collection truly a book to treasure. Axel has enjoyed particular success with his collaborations with Julia Donaldson, including the award-winning classic The Gruffalo.
The volume itself is attractively presented, with good quality binding on the hardback edition and well printed colour plates. You certainly will feel that this is a book your child will be able to grow up with and pass on to his or her own offspring as a treasured heirloom insha-Allah. The book has eighty eight rhymes to keep your children quite occupied. My three children all under five love this rhyme book. I would highly recommend this book for your little ones. Enjoy the rhymes!
