How many times have you read stories from religious books? We have heard and seen a lot of stories from the Hindu religion’s books. Since I studied in a school ran by Christians, I have also heard of stories around Jesus Christ. The exact reason I picked up the book “Muezza and Baby Jaan: Stories from the Quran” was because it has stories from the Quran.

What excited me about the book was that the stories are based out of the Quran. I have heard stories of from religious books but the Quran, I have never got a chance. I am so glad I got to read the book to my 5-year-old and narrate her some stories from the holy book.
This book by Anita Nair is a collection of stories from the Quran. Beautifully illustrated through a cat and a camel stuck in a desert. How the cat narrates various stories to the camel and keeps her entertained even while being stranded in the desert
I like the simple language of the book and the stories. The book is well-written and a great way of telling stories.
At some point, I did find the narrative to be a little dragging to keep my daughter’s attention to the story.
However, I enjoyed reading the book to her and to myself as well. My daughter at least knows a few stories from the Quran which I never knew before reading this book.
