Rumi was also a prolific poet. Here is a brief excerpt about Rumi from the book's jacket describing his poetry: "He wrote about the love that resides in the soul of everyone regardless of religion or background." All of the poems included in this book were really lovely and not too difficult for children to understand.
From a current events perspective, this was a really interesting book to read with my six year old son because Rumi was born in Afghanistan, and his family traveled through the Middle East before settling in Turkey. Reading Rumi was an easy and meaningful way to expose my son to poetry and culture from that region. It was also nice to read a picture book with him again, because he usually won't stand for anything he perceives as "too babyish". In fact, I am going to be adding any book I can find by Demi to my reading list.
Perfect choice! Like all Demi books, the illustrations are inviting and magical. The story is well told. Only complaint is that there is not as much of his poetry
in the book as I would have liked--but then again, this is about his life, rather than a book of poems. We have The Illuminated Rumi , The Rumi Daybook , and Rumi: The Big Red Book: The Great Masterpiece Celebrating Mystical Love and Friendship for poems. I have read some favorites to the kids, but they get to choose the one(s) they will memorize, illustrate, or what not.
