As salamu alaikum,
there is a very nice book called Ibrahim's search by Qasim Najr. It is
about a little boys search for the Creator. It teaches vhildren to use
thier mind and think, even in religion. If yr children are older then I
would suggest the books by Harun Yahya, they are regarding science, mind,
thought and they give a convincing analysis of why you need islam and how it
works. He also has a selection on the signs and miracles of our creator. If
you need any convincing....or yr kids..these are good. Sorry I'm in a
hurry right now, but you can e mail me if you want to know where to get them
or have any questions.

Assalamu Alaikum Alice
You do not mention your children's age. But either way, it is mainly your
own example that will speak for itself. If you are happy about becoming a
muslim and share your excitement with your children, they will likely want
to know more.
If you share your discoveries about Islam with them in the same way you
would share the discovery of a magnificent flower, a beautiful sunset, or
the flight of birds coming back for the spring, they will likely enjoy the
experience and remain interested and inquisitive.
Signs of Allah's creation are everywhere and are a constant reminder of His
Greatness and Mercy. Point to His creation to bring His Beauty into their
own eyes and hearts.
In times of change, children feel a sense of security when they can connect
to what they already know and understand. It might help them if you make
those connections between the facets of Islam and what they already know.
For example, you could talk about other Prophets they already know and how
their message on the Oneness of God is the same in Islam.
If your children are young, reading aloud to them from Children's Islamic
Books is a great way to teach them about Islam. The lives of the Prophets,
on audio tapes or in books, is a good and easy way to start as it logically
brings you to the life of Prophet Mohammad (may peace and blessings be upon
Mainly, it is the light in your eyes and the warmth in your heart that will
transpire and spark their curiosity.
"ALLAHU AKBAR" (God is Great) is the message you want them to understand.
Once they "feel" that love for their creator, they will likely be more
receptive to technicalities such as the different way of praying or the more
modest dress code.
May Allah guide you and your family to the right path, may He open your eyes
to the truth and fill your hearts with His Love and Mercy.
Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahamatullah
