This early reader rhyming series is based upon a young Muslim boy (Zaahir) and his 
furry friend (Jamel the Camel). Come along with them and experience the pleasure and 
joy of this beautiful ride to the mosque. Learning about Islam will be more fun than ever

Why I like this book:
I really like rhyming books and the author, Amatullah AlMarwani does a wonderful job weaving a fun and lyrical tale about a boy and his camel friend as they visit the mosque. Young children will learn and experience the pleasure and joy that Zaahir and Jamel has while there. I love that there are activities included at the end of the book that reinforces what they learned in a fun way.
