Using Reading Circles to Inspire Change
Seeking to actively engage my son, I formed a monthly reading circle with a small group of Muslim friends. I wanted to create a safe place for Muslim children where we could come together for book readings, craft and conversation. A place for them to speak freely about their concerns, spark curiosity about their identity and understand how it intersects and weaves beyond themselves.
The Horn Book March/April 2020 :
Heidi Rabinowitz and Sadaf Siddique consider religion in conversations around diverse books, with a focus on Jewish and Muslim representation.
