Let It Go by Mufti Menk and Na'ima B Robert
'Life isn’t always easy Even when you’re small, You may feel angry, or hurt or sad, We’re only human, after all.' We all have days when things seem to go from bad to worse. Follow one little boy whose frustrating day is making him angrier and angrier and see where it takes him.
A charming way to introduce children to one of the core character traits in Islam: forgiveness. Inspired by the motivational words of the popular/ well-loved Mufti Menk and crafted by award-winning author Na'ima B. Robert, this story invites children to identify and talk about their feelings and learn how to cope with them.
Naima B. Robert: Na'ima B Robert is descended from Scottish Highlanders on her father's side and the Zulu people on her mother's side. She was born in Leeds, grew up in Zimbabwe and went to university in London. At high school, her loves included performing arts, public speaking and writing stories that shocked her teachers! She has written several multicultural books for children.
"The best part of the book is that it recognises that children ARE little people, they have emotions, they too have their struggles, they too overreact in the heat of the situation...and just shouting at them, or dismissing them off as being childish doesn't work. This book amazingly creates that dialogue that a lot of us NEED to have with our children, especially those who think that kids don't really have a mind of their own and can be taught to just do as they are told without explanation.
Additionally I would like to add that the book is a practical example of how we can go forward in the 21st century, teaching our children to be good, useful, productive members of the society, wherever they may be, and do this without having to step away from religion, which is unfortunately what some people go on believing...blaming everything on religion."
