Een nieuw deel in de Planeet Omar serie en ditmaal een moskee die problemen heeft, vriendschap, een vervelende zus dus, en nog veel meer. Ik heb echt genoten van het boek, het was erg leuk.
Over de zus. Ja, het is niet leuk als je broer je deur platloopt, maar praat dan gewoon normaal met hem. Vertel hem ook eerlijk dat het je hoog zit. En aan de ouders, misschien ook eens nadenken over hoe het is om privacy te hebben. Ju ...more

Omar went to school and sold origami birds and cookies which lead to him gaining the money. At night, he sleptwalk and he hid the money without him knowing and told everyone ...more
Loved how he called it the Secret Smile Mosque!
So so so glad This book exists for Muslims as Representation Matters!
Now more than ever children’s books are so important for empathy and reminding us that we are one we are all human and we need to help each other!
All the stars!!! ⭐️🌟💫✨

Review based on an ARC received from NetGalley. ...more
This book was a great sequel to the first, bringing just as much fun, nonsense and adventure. The book continues to normalise the reflection of BAME characters in children's books. A perfect reading for pleasure text for the Y3 squirrels. ...more
It's slightly different to the first one which tackles some big issues, but this one is also brilliant in its own smaller focused way! I love the writing and humour that runs throughout the book and Omar is such a great character. I love his relationship with his friends which is perfectly captured across the book!
Hopefully they'll be a number 3! ...more
Prachtige quote die op de eerste bladzijde van dit leuke boek staat. Het geeft al direct weer dat dit een boekje met een onderliggende boodschap wordt.
Omar, het hoofdpersonage in het verhaal, heeft een naam die meestal niet aan een Vlaams of Nederlands kind gegeven wordt. Ook zijn huidskleur en zijn donkere ogen en haar bevestigen deze bemerking. Maar wat een leuk gevoel krijg je bij het zien van ...more
