The World of Islam in Literature for Youth was developed for librarians, parents, students, teachers, school media specialists, and other readers who are interested in identifying helpful resources on the topic of Islam and the Muslim culture. Divided into 16 chapters that reflect the different aspects of Islam and the Muslim culture, this annotated bibliography covers more than 700 books, instructional materials, videos, DVDs, audio tapes, and online resources, each with a complete bibliographical description, including author's name, title, place of publication, publisher, year, number of pages, and ISBN (both for hard copy and paper, if available); and recommended grade levels. Digital electronic resources, in addition to the above bibliographic description, also include length of running time, producer, and whether in black and white or color. This is a ready reference that educators can use for easily identifying resources to use in promoting understanding of Islam.

VOYA ...includes over 500 print and non-print titles for K-12 that were selected based on positive reviews and availability...this information is much needed... Booklist, 9/15/2006 The authors of this excellent tool obviously spent a great deal of time and care in compiling this lengthy list of resources...Certainly both authors can be applauded for their painstaking work in completing this helpful text that needs to be on the shelves of school and public libraries across the nation. Multicultural Review, Vol. 15, No. 4 (Winter 2006) This book will be of use to librarians and media specialists who are looking to expand their holdings in this area. It is the most up-to-date resource of its kind currently available. School Library Journal, 6/1/2006 This unequaled bibliography should prove indispensable for librarians, teachers, homeschoolers, and others wishing to obtain resources for teaching and learning about Islam. American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007) Earlier bibliographies have not been updated for the post-9/11 world, note Garcha (library and information science) and Russell (English as a second language, both U. of Toledo, Ohio), and children hear little but vicious war-mongering regarding one of the major religions of the world. To help parents and educators, they have reviewed 536 print and nonprint titles in biography, fiction and folklore, geography, history and politics, Islamic faith and practice, Nation of Islam, resistance versus terrorism, women in Islam, and other aspects. Most are in print. Indexes are by author, geography, grade, illustrator, subject, and title. Reference and Research Book News
