"Newcomer Gonzales, a Latino poet and convert to Islam, invites his daughter to take pride in her identity and heritage as a 'child of crescent moons/ a builder of mosques,/ a descendant of brilliance,/ an ancestor in training'.... This intensely personal book is not meant as an introduction to Islam; instead, it speaks directly to Muslim children growing up in a place where they may be marked as different — children in need of a voice to recognize and speak for them." — Publishers Weekly
