'In My Mosque draws readers into the Muslim house of worship to show how it is so much more than a place to pray.
Aly's illustrations echo the warmth of Yuksel's text, depicting loving, happy communities, rich in diversity of all sorts.' - Booklist
'This marvelous, welcoming book on mosques, Muslims, and Islam is a must.' - School Library Journal, Starred Review
'Debut author Yuksel writes a rich introduction to mosques, encompassing Muslim garb, ideals, and practices. Hatem's art offers a lush, multilayered appeal: golden world balloons with holy phrases; intricate, delicate-lined details; and inclusive scenes with people of varying abilities, ages, skin tones, and sizes. This personable, sensory love letter to a range of children's mosque experiences will engage new learners and resonate with those already familiar.' - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
'Joyful characters describe what happens in simple, poetic language. [...] Aly's bright illustrations pair well with Yuksel's words, ending with a beautiful spread of children staring at readers, waving and extending their hands.' - Kirkus
