When kids experience Ramadan, they do more than watch their parents fast and help with iftar. During Ramadan, children build important memories which will influence how they feel about Ramadan and other Islamic traditions in later life. As parents, it’s our responsibility to do our best to make these memories and feelings positive, to show an Islamic lifestyle is exciting and fascinating.
Here at Our Muslim Homeschool, we are introducing the Ramadan Book Club! Aimed at kids aged 4-9, we have gathered stories and activities for you to enjoy with your children throughout the month of Ramadan. Each book and activity has been selected to help you get the most out of this month without adding to your stressful workload!

Children respond positively to stories – as do most humans. For centuries, cultures around the world have used stories to instil important lessons and sentiments in their communities. For this reason, stories are a powerful resource when trying to teach our children Islamic principles. But how do we find the time to use stories in an efficient way and still make the most of Ramadan for ourselves?
The Ramadan Book Club for Kids
We have carefully chosen 4 books for your family to enjoy together during Ramadan – one for each week. Each book wonderfully encapsulates important aspects of Ramadan for your kids to absorb, discuss, and reflect on.
If you register with The Ramadan Book Club, you receive specially designed book packs which guide you through a range of activities linked with each story we read together. Ramadan can be filled with busy days, and these book packs have been designed to help you bond with your children in a way that will bring minimal stress to you. So, don’t worry; you can pick and choose which activities suit you and your family, or you may just want to enjoy the books. It’s completely flexible – do as much or as little as you’d like!
By registering, you participate in an online community as we all share our experiences with the book packs. You’ll even be able to join a virtual meet-up with the authors of the books!
