I Went for Hajj
See, hear, smell and feel the wondrous Hajj pilgrimage with a young boy, who's returned from Makkah a Hajji.
A rhyming book, perfect to read aloud, that gives children a taste of the sacred things pilgrims see and do on the most important trip for Muslims.
What I loved: As someone who was not familiar with this practice, the book was a great source of information in a fun format that can help to teach about Islam. The rhythmic phrases and question-and-answer format are really charming and fun to read, rolling off the tongue on each page. The cute and expressive illustrations add to the fun for young readers. The front and back matter is really helpful in being able to understand and explore more around this practice, with the potential to use it in classroom lessons.
Final verdict: A cute and rhythmic story, I WENT FOR HAJJ is an informative and fun picture book about this Muslim practice.
