RTL: Oliver Who Would Not Sleep!

  السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Book Title: Oliver Who Would Not Sleep!
Author: Mara Bergman
Islamically Appropriate?: No
Genre: Fiction
Book Format: Picture Book
Age Group: 2-5
Book Review:Oliver is a little boy who, when bedtime comes, does what most young children do....they don't sleep. Like many children, Oliver gets out of bed, plays with his toys and lets his imagination run wild.The story has magic in it and also one line of text (and illustration) seems to put yawning nice and big and loud in a nice light but the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa salam) taught us that yawning is from the shaytaan so this is a behaviour we do not wish to encourage our children to adapt...waallaahu a'lam.

Until the next read insha'Allaah....
