Dear little one... know you are wondrous.

A child of crescent moons,

A builder of mosques,

A descendant of brilliance,

An ancestor in training.

The vivid and elegant verse, accompanied by magical and vibrant illustrations, highlights the diversity of the Muslim community as well as Indigenous (South American) identity. A literary journey of discovery and wonder, Yo Soy Muslim is sure to inspire adults and children alike.
