Emory student Sojourner Hunt (C'22) reads Crescent Moons and Pointed Minarets: A Muslim Book of Shapes by Hena Khan

The Artful Stories program introduces young children to age-appropriate literature related to the museum's collections and exhibitions, encouraging them to look closely at works of art. 

Seated in the exhibition Wondrous Worlds: Art & Islam Through Time & Place, Emory student Sojourner Hunt (C'22) reads Crescent Moons and Pointed Minarets: A Muslim Book of Shapes by Hena Khan, illustrated by Mehrdokht Amini, and published by Chronicle Books.  

“From a crescent moon to a square garden to an octagonal fountain, this breathtaking picture book celebrates the shapes—and traditions—of the Muslim world. Sure to inspire questions and observations about world religions and cultures, Crescent Moons and Pointed Minarets is equally at home in a classroom reading circle and on a parent's lap being read to a child.” - Chronicle Books
