Entrepreneurs Randa Kuziez and Shahd al-Asaly were having a difficult time finding children books that were unique to Muslim culture and identity so they founded the book subscription service called HoneyTree Books. The service allows a child to select a total of sixteen books per year; and every four months, books come in the mail.
The pair have built up a respected selection of authors “We sit down with our wonderful group of experts to decide which books get selected, based on many factors such as the story itself, quality, illustrations, age group, and the value or lesson,” said Kuziez. “We like to include books with beautiful illustrations and a lesson of some sort that relates to our values as Muslims. We also send reflection questions so parents can hone on these lessons in the stories.”
