The researchers have found that Children who can read well are more likely to have higher confidence levels. Stories are a great way to introduce new words and ideas into a child’s language and imparting important facets of character building. Stories are also useful for teaching more complex ideas, such as the importance of sharing, the passage of time, compassion for others. And what’s so great about learning through stories is that the process is done in a natural way. There is no actual teaching involved at all, they learn from simply reading the story.Also reading stories can be helpful for relaxation, before bedtime for example. They allow children to forget the stresses and strains of the day and indulge in reading stories. Stories help to develop a children’s imagination by introducing new ideas into their world and encouraging them to realize that they can, and should, imagine anything they want. The beauty of stories is that they can be super realistic or incredibly fantastical. When children read stories that contain feelings it can help them understand and accept their own feelings. It helps them understand that there are other children who feel the same way and they are not alone. This helps the child understand that feelings are normal and should be expressed. Watching their responses to the feelings of the characters in the stories will give you some idea of how a child feels about certain situations and emotions.

By and large, the stories included in this book provide an importance source for children, young Muslims, their parents and teachers, who crave for more stimulating literature in English language. Some of the stories demonstrate the courage, chivalry- determination and sacrifice of Muslims who refused to deviate from the straight path of willing obedience to the Creator, and motivate, inspire, and encourage the readers to reflect upon such exemplary behaviour.Keeping the above objectives in mind stories are selected and compiled for kids of all background in general and Muslim kids in particular. Section 1 cover general stories whereas section 2 covers stories from Islamic practices of Muslims of the past. For Muslim children to develop their understanding of the principles of Islam at an early age, pearls of wisdoms are added as Section 3 of the book in pictures format to make more interesting for the kids to read and with the help of their parents and teachers to reflect on them.Teachers and psychologists are in agreement in believing that the purposeful stimulating stories and pearls of wisdom are one of the best means of self leaning and instruction. For example, such stories and pearls of wisdom of faith, religion, revelation and certainty provide a rich framework for their readers’ practical life. Also, from stories and pearls of wisdom that are pitched at the progressive levels of the kids and youth understands and in a language which they can easily apprehend and enjoy can lead to the successful teaching and learning of high moral standards, ethics
