Muslim representation is something that needs to be addressed year-round. With Ramadan quickly approaching, why not take a look at your bookshelf today to see where you can make improvements in both Muslim voices and representation?
When you're searching for Muslim representation it's important to seek out stories that showcase positive situations and acts of joy (you can read more about why Own Voices stories are so important here). Don't reach solely for the stories of stereotypical oppression and repeated victim narrative—this is already overrepresented in our media. Let's raise our kids to both respect and admire being Muslim!

Combating Islamophobia starts at home, and it can start at story time. Integrate these books in your family to normalize happy Muslim stories that may look a little different than yours, but are just as special.
