***PLEASE NOTE: This lesson was written by a non-Muslim librarian, but I have done all I can to ensure the authenticity of the information. It is thoroughly-researched and includes source information in notes section of each slide. I also sent it to a sensitivity reader (who is Muslim) to check for accuracy, sensitivity, and thoroughness.


This product is a combination of Digital Storytime and Digital Bulletin Board. Many elementary librarians have been purchasing both the Digital Storytimes and Digital Bulletin Boards for each weekly theme. When it’s appropriate for the topic, I combine them into one presentation to save you money and time. I’ve covered all grades here, from K-6.
