This book is very much needed for Muslim kids growing up in a non-Muslim country. The illustrations are beautiful and the concept is very nice. It is wonderful that there are authors making an effort to write such books. There was a page with tips for teachers and parents, and Islamic and Urdu words included in the end with meaning. Quite a few activities are there too. I wish they were removable or at the end so they could be removed easily. There are a bunch of experiments that I found very interesting. Looking forward to many more books by the author.
