RTL: The Baby in the Hat

  السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Book Title:The Baby in the Hat
Author: Allan Ahlberg
Islamically Appropriate?: No
Genre: Fiction
Book Format: Picture Book
Age Group: 2-5
Book Review: Tells the story of a boy who is supposed to have caught a baby who fell from the window with his hat. The boy was given a monetary reward by the parents and he used this to buy a train ticket and ended up falling on board a ship. The story follows the boys adventure until he becomes a man. There is a graphic pirate ship battle illustration with an amount of violence parents may not be comfortable with. There is also a wedding scene, a mermaid and a falling in love incident in the story; Concepts which contradict Islaamic legislation.

Until the next read insha'Allaah....
