    Hi everyone i work in a school where 60%ish are Muslim children. They asked me to order a book featured in a children's newspaper called 'Accidental Omar' and they have loved it. My question anyone know any ks2 books where main characters are Muslim so they can identify. Thanks

    maybe be a bit more specific - e.g. some Asian characters could be other religions. And some Muslim characters could be from other countries (outside Asia).

    I've come across books but linked to specific celebrations, not general.

    Hope this makes sense, good luck.
