It is the responsibility Islamic writers to produce readable and effective literature for Muslim children. Conventional children's literature may not necessarily alienate Muslim children from their religion. However, exposure to books with wrong contents may lure them to consumerism, hedonism, individualism, selfishness and materialism. Such reading materials may invite them to seek happiness in senseless pursuits of worldly pleasures and other forms of excesses and adverse social trends. By ignoring the need for children's literature, the Muslim community as a whole is shrouded in obscurity and in a pall of despondency. The time to take heed of this message is now.
