Sonia T. Husayn writes fun, engaging books for Muslim children. Her love of storytelling was ignited in 2016 when she set up a weekend club in her local community, where she developed a curriculum focused on teaching children components of their faith through art, song, crafts, and storytelling. This initiative showed her the power of stories and how they can be used to connect children to the rich traditions of their faith.

Coupling this technique with her Montessori Early Years training, she creates wholesome, holistic books for children. She is passionate about creating literature which will inspire a life-long love of reading, literature and faith in the hearts of little Muslims.
