The Blessed Bananas is a sweet story which teaches about the beauty of generosity and, more importantly, about how we as Muslims should react to bad behavior.
It is about an old, grumpy monkey named Rico who learns the value of sharing and friendship.
I loved the beautiful illustrations and I thought that the addition of some recipes was a nice touch – I’m eager to try out the banana ice cream and banana nut date bread especially.
This book would be a wonderful addition to any home or school library. It has some wonderful teaching moments which will In Shaa Allah help to impart beneficial knowledge on the little ones reading it and is a sweet story besides.
Final rating: 5 bananas out of 5.
