Written by Anousha Vakani. Illustrated by Ayesha Sohail. Edited by Jamila Hakam.
Najma loves stars. She wants to swim with them in the ocean-like sky and paint them in all their different shades and sizes. Mama, an astronomer, sets up her telescope and walks Najma through the life-cycle of stars; how they're born in clouds of gas and dust called Nebulae and how they end up as stardust that helps the universe grow. They talk about Allah as the Creator of the stars and thank Him for everything they love. Full of curiosity and wonder, Najma is written in simple yet whimsical prose.
