The book is in color with plenty of pictures that are age appropriate and connect to the lesson well. The unique illustrations are adorable and my children responded very well. The fact that the grade textbooks are divided into two parts is excellent. It is easier on the children to handle the size of the books, and easier on the parents for dividing their homeschool year into two halves. The large font is helpful for novice readers, and there is ample space for students to write their answers on the book. I appreciated the fact that the publishers and authors of the book focused on the positives of Islamic teachings and none of the fear inducing topics. I enjoyed the Sample Review feature offered on NoorArt's webpage. It has helped me tremendously in selecting the right curriculum for my homeschooled kids.
