What Does A Muslim Look Like?

Washington, D.C. area author Mohamed Abdel-Kader’s first book What Does a Muslim Look Like? is inspired by his real life experience when a curious airport security guard questioned the origin of his name and his appearance – because he didn’t fit the stereotype of what a Muslim “should look like”.

What Does A Muslim Look Like? follows young Jack and Jane who learn that the new friends they made at school are Muslim. Their curiosity leads them to discover that Muslims come in all colors and hail from various backgrounds from around the world.

Beautifully illustrated and written with fun rhymes, this book is a necessary and positive lesson in diversity for children of all ages. The book is scheduled for release on August 21, 2012.
