Explore the African Savanna from One Small Square

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

It is hard to imagine that children will be disappointed in the adventure that awaits them in One Small Square: African Savanna.

Life and death on the savanna and the incredible way in which Allaah has decreed that animals make their living and survive in this environment are explained well in this book. Additionally, children will gather much knowledge from the informative captions that surround the pages.

However, like the other books from this series that have been reviewed here on The Well Read Muslim, there are sentences that parents/educators will need to reword so children are not taught concepts that conflict with the shari'ah. One such sentence is "Nature depends on everything living on the savanna to do its part." Nature here seems to refer to what non-Muslims believe creates, maintains, and sustains the natural world that Allaah created. The two or three sentences that follow the above-mentioned sentence confirm this, so parents/educators will need to reword these sentences in'shaa Allaah. Overall, however, there is much children can learn in this book alhamdulillaah, under the guidance of a parent/educator.

Here is what has said about One Small Square: African Savanna: The African grasslands stretch across the continent below the Sahara. In a swuare of land about the size of a living room, children will see animals they might have encountered only at the zoo. . .discover the rewards and dangers of their natural home. . .and observe how these creatures live with each other in a changing, endangered environment. It's an exciting journey of discovery, coming to you from the One Small Square series of interactive science and nature books. . .where the next stop could be as near as your backyard or as far as half a world away.

If you haven't read the other One Small Square series reviews here on The Well Read Muslim, you can find them here in'shaa Allaah.

Until the next book in'shaa Allaah...
