The book we will use for Together We Read: February is Castles, Caves, and Honeycombs
This story is a fun poem that teaches children about homes: how they are different for people and animals in regards to their shape, size, texture, etc. The story also highlights that homes are for playing in, sharing things with your family inside of them, and being safe and secure inside of them as well.
Insha'Allaah, we will incorporate ayaat from the Quran where Allaah mentions the homes of different animals and also where He mentions the homes of human beings. We will also include, insha'Allaah, some authentic ahadith wherein the Prophet (sallallaaahu alayhi wa salam) taught us about manners of entering and leaving the home, how to treat guests who come to your home, etc.
You can also find wonderful ideas to use with the book in this Castle, Caves and Honeycombs Activity Guide.
You can peek inside of the book here insha'Allaah:
Insha'Allaah, this book is available at your local libarary and you can also find it on Amazon.com
Insha'Allaah, I will post the activities on February 15th and I hope you will join us too! Remember, you do not have to use the same book. Pick any book your child(ren) may enjoy, sit down together and enjoy the reading. If you do any activities that you would like to share, there will be a linky that will allow you to do so insha'Allaah.
