Where can you buy Islamic books for children online?
As a Muslim parent, teacher, and caretaker, it’s important to have a range of Islamic books for babies and children. That way, we can progressively instil Islamic values into our kids in a fun way.
Advantages of reading for kids
Reading to babies and children is important for various reasons, such as:
- Helps them to with their cognitive development
- Builds stronger vocabulary
- Develops a bond between parent, caretaker, and child
- Giving them a head start in literacy, as study suggests
- Encourages a reading culture at home
- Highlights the importance of seeking knowledge to children at a young age
Benefits of reading Islamic books to children
Now, reading books infused with Islamic principles appropriate for Muslim children also has its benefits.
Research that was conducted in 2010 highlights how educational reading materials specifically for Muslim children can do the following:
- It enables children to understand better life experiences that they encounter
- Influence the choices and decisions they have to make
- And how they respond to other around them
Therefore, instead of preaching (which may come off as nagging to some children), these educational Islamic books for babies and children can encourage discussion and analytical thinking.
Being represented in stories can also make them have a sense of belonging.

Buku Aulad was my first time ever buying Islamic books for babies and children online.
They carry a range of books for babies, toddlers, and young Muslim readers.

What I like most about Buku Aulad is its friendly customer service. Sometimes, they give out free books as gifts when you buy several books from them.

Muhsin Kids is also another online store you can buy Islamic books for babies and toddlers online.
What I like most about Muhsin Kids is that they don’t just sell books on Islam for young Muslim children, but they also have books on other topics such as emotions and psychology which are important for our children.
They also have many interesting gift kits and activity kits for kids such as DIY tee-shirts for kids.
Nur Innai Bookshop
Nur Innai Bookshop is a small quaint bookstore in TTDI, Kuala Lumpur. However, they also sell books online via their Instagram page.
What I like most about Nur Innai Bookshop is that they carry a very sophisticated range of books.
I must state it clearly that they do not have books specifically for children, although they do have several books for young Muslim readers. But normally, the books might be for kids above 7 years old.
You can find many other books to increase your spiritual growth here.
I’ve bought several books here a few times. Sometimes, they give us free books <3 All of the books are wrapped nicely, sometimes with dried flowers. It is indeed a pick-me-up when you receive your books.

If you are a Muslim parent or teacher who lives beyond Southeast Asia, then you should definitely check out Book Depository as it has a lot of great Islamic books for children too.
The best thing about Book Depository is that there is free shipping for all international orders.
However, it might take 1-2 months, depending on the season. But I must say it is worth the wait especially if you want to buy important books that you cannot find in your local bookstores.

They obviously need no introduction, especially if you are living in American and Canada.
I must admit that Amazon might have the widest range of Islamic books for children, as it is the biggest e-commerce site.
I have never purchased a book from them since I have moved back to Malaysia, therefore, I cannot really comment much on my experience.
Nevertheless, what I do notice about Amazon is that they may not carry the latest books that new authors or small publishing companies. However, you might be able to find more Islamic books for children by upcoming others on smaller sites such as the ones listed above.
However, the website states this about international shipping:
The cost to ship items from each product category varies by item, shipment, and shipping option.
