Wednesdays with The Subversive Children's Book Club: Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns

This edition of Wednesdays with The Subversive Children's Book Club features Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns:  A Muslim Book of Colors by Hena Khan.  This is a beautifully illustrated book with charming rhymes that tie each color to an aspect of a little girl's Muslim faith and culture.  It is one of the most engaging books about colors I have read and includes a glossary so parents and children who may be unfamiliar with some aspects of Muslim faith and culture can learn what different words mean. It is a sweet addition to any child's library, made even better by the fact that there is so little representation of Muslim culture in most American children's literature.
