Additional Notes

From The Publisher*From a crescent moon to a square garden to an octagonal fountain, this breathtaking picture book celebrates the shapes - and traditions - of the Muslim world. With stunning illustrations, a rhyming read-aloud text, and strong backmatter, CRESCENT MOONS AND POINTED MINARETS will inspire questions and observations about world religions and cultures, and is equally at home in a classroom reading circle as it is being read to a child on a parent's lap.
