Najma loves stars. She wants to swim with them in the ocean-like sky and paint them in all their different shades and sizes. Mama, an astronomer, sets up her telescope and walks Najma through the life-cycle of stars; how they're born in clouds of gas and dust called Nebulae and how they end up as stardust that helps the universe grow. They talk about Allah as the Creator of the stars and thank Him for everything they love. Full of curiosity and wonder, Najma is written in simple yet whimsical prose.

I know this book is carried by a lot of vendors, but Muslim Memories has the most diverse product list I have seen. I bought this book along with a few others. They were quick to respond to my inquires and the package arrived with no damage. I hate when my brand new books come in damaged - my OCD self cannot handle it. Very professional service - will definitely use them again! I also love how their product descriptions includes tons of pictures. It makes my decision making much easier.
