Its a very detailed about the five pillars of Islam. Each chapter is a pillar in itself, very good book for fourth and fifth graders. Also in the chapter, Islam is being compared to other main religions especially Judaism, Christianity. Even includes some recipes for Ramadan, the holy month for Muslims in which they fast from dawn till sunset. Apart from the pillars of Islam, the intro book about Islam talks about the holidays. They also contain twelve months of Islams calendar for social studies. The history of Islam, its spread and its sects are all included in this book. Its very informative and I personally enjoyed every bit of it.
