Likes: I really like how their are lots of metaphors and similies used by Omar as this is what makes him have such a great imagination. It is informative as well as humorous so it is a fun way to learn about Islam.

This book could be used really nicely as a class text because it offers many opportunities for discussions to be held around some difficult and emotional topics such as bullying and feeling accepted. Also this book could be placed in the book corner providing children with opportunities to quietly engage with the book alongside friends or independently. Yet when mean Mrs Rogers has an accident, Omar's family is there to help. And when Omar and bully Daniel get stranded on a school trip in London, Omar realises that Danny isn't so tough after all... Previously published as 'THE MUSLIMS', this was the winner of the Little Rebels Award in June 2018. The text has been revised, expanded and re-illustrated.* As a reader I like how the author chose to present some of the words as illustrations as this made it easier to follow and was also engaging. Also I like how the author has explained many of the key words in a child friendly manned which would help both children and teachers to understand their meanings and read them within context.

Get to know us

Welcome to the imaginative brain of Omar! You might not know me yet,but once you open this book you’ll laugh so hard that snot will come out of your nose.* At least Eid’s around the corner which means a feast (YAY) and presents (DOUBLE YAY). Well, as long as I can stay in Mum and Dad’s good books long enough… |We komen er ook achter waar de titel op slaat, en ik moest wel lachen. Omar toch. Wat een problemenmagneet ben je! This book opens up a cross curricular link to DT as quite frequently, Omar talks about the types of food that he eats which are native to his culture. As a class, children can find some of these recipes thatOmar has talked about and make them theirselves so children can experience food from different cultures and religions which they might not have tried otherwise. Use the example of Omar getting lost and encourage the children to write a first-person narrative to describe the emotions and feelings that Daniel and Omar may be experiencing.

The book provides a good base to continue to explore religious festivals in Islam, for example Eid, during religious education lessons. It is one of the few books I have read which explored religion in this way, but I really enjoyed how the author used it throughout the story, to make connections. I like the themes in the book and I enjoyed exploring Omar’s positive thoughts to help him understand that he is different. I liked the different fonts and pictures in the book. This will encourage children to read the book and challenge themselves to identify what the images represent. One day after school, Charlie comes over to Omar’s house for dinner and once again Mrs Rodgers is overheard referring to her neighbours as ‘the Muslims’ in a negative manner. Omar vond ik meteen een erg leuke hoofdpersoon, hij was grappig, vriendelijk, en hij was ook erg lief naar zijn zus en broertje. Ik vond het erg leuk hoe makkelijk hij vrienden maakte, ik zou ook wel die skill willen hebben, lijkt me een erg nuttige en handige skill. Planet Omar has all of the everyday life family drama and silly humour of Tom Gates and Sam Wu, and it's wonderful to read a funny book for kids featuring a Muslim reviewed between 08.30 to 16.30 Monday to Friday. We're experiencing a high volume of enquiries so it may take us En hoewel Omar zich afvraagt waar hij dan naar toe moet als alle moslims uit het land geschopt worden, en hier toch wel wat zorgen over heeft, is het ook duidelijk dat deze jongen trots is op zijn geloof. Want tussen de zorgen door vertelt Omar in al zijn enthousiasme over zijn thuisleven, tradities die voor zijn eigen familie heel normaal zijn. Over het suikerfeest, de mooiste moskee die hij ooit heeft gezien. En met die trots kun je zelfde de ergste toestanden overwinnen, zelfs een pestkop. I think most children would be able to make some connection with this book from their home life, as it talks about the use of modern technology, Xbox and iPhones, which most children have heard about. I think this book would be good for children in upper KS2 and could help them and understand the transition between schools and it may help them feel less nervous about their transition to secondary school. Ondertussen zien we ook dat Omars zus in de puberteit belandt is en dat ze daardoor soms, voor Omar, vreemd reageert. Opeens boos worden, weglopen, maar dan ook weer heel vrolijk en blij zijn. The playful text is bolstered with illustrations throughout that show off [Omar’s] creativity and imagination. A great #OwnVoices story for children to learn more about connection and empathy.” —S chool Library Journal

Patterns: The Muslim traditions, the imaginary dragon popping into his head when he is in trouble as it helps to keep him calm. Wildly imaginative Omar’s free-association narrative, laced with expressive hand lettering and Mafaridik’s playfully exaggerated line art, remains chipper and uplifting.” – Publishers Weekly A successful juvenile by the beloved New Yorker writer portrays a farm episode with an imaginative twist that makes a poignant, humorous story of a pig, a spider and a little girl.A very kid-friendly and appealinglyhonest story about being different, being labeled ‘other.'”— The New York Times Book Review At the beginning of this book, the reader is given some information about each member of Omar's family and a little illustration of them which I thought was a really good idea because the reader then instantly gets an idea of Omar's life. I really enjoyed reading this book as I feel like it is very educational as it explains quite a lot about the Islam religion which can be useful when teaching children about Islam. Especially as it tells the reader about the different prayers that they do everyday, tells the reader about Ramadan and why they do it and also about the two different Eid's that Muslims celebrate throughout the year. Also, this book can teach children how they can stand up to bullies and what should do if they are being bullied in school. This book has excellent illustrations that go alongside the text and they are illustrations that make you feel like you are inside Omar's head and following him through every emotion that he feels. Want met een nieuwe school komen nieuwe kinderen, en kinderen kunnen zo gemeen zijn tegen elkaar. “Jij bent moslim… Jullie kunnen maar beter teruggaan naar je eigen land voordat we jullie er allemaal uitschoppen.” En hoewel dit boek zich in Engeland afspeelt, is dit ook al maar al te herkenbaar in een Nederlandse context. Deze agressie komt voort uit onbegrip, uit een buurvrouw die niets te maken wil hebben met haar nieuwe buren - ze maken herrie, ze gebruiken te veel kruiden en dat stinkt - totdat ze een keer oog in oog met elkaar komen te staan. Allebei mensen. In this follow-up to 2020’s The One and Only Bob, Ruby the elephant is still living at Wildworld Zoological Park and Sanctuary.
