Growmama Picks for April ’11

Growmama Picks is a collection of fun, interesting, and/or inspiring links that we’ll share with you at the end of every month.

1. This article on resilience in children was posted on our discussion board.

2. Last week’s NPR story, as well as the French face-cover ban, sparked some interesting debate. Dr. Imad Bayoun’s Friday khutba response was timely.

3. Collard Green Muslim had us laughing and crying at her story The Day My Soul Caught Fire.

4. We were deeply touched by Yasmin Mogahed’s Why People Have to Leave Each Other on suhaibwebb.com

5. An incredibly creative effort to help children understand the Quran using Lego figurines here.

6. Green bags for Muslim kids at Jannah Steps.

7. From the Growmama archives: The Swings reminded us to cut down on the complaining and count our blessings.

As always, a heartfelt thank you to Growmama’s dedicated readers, writers, and discussion board members!

    I hadn’t read the Resilience in Children article before. It’s wonderfully practical and an issue I continue to struggle with.
