The field of cognitive growth was a relative weight of 46.22%, followed by social growth with a relative weight of 22.08%, then mental growth with a relative weight of 11.86% , And the field of communication with a relative weight of (9.75%) followed by the economic field with a weight of (4.04%), the national field with relative weight (3.76%), the technological field with relative weight (2.29%), In the light of the results, the study presented a number of recommendations, the most important of which is the review of the curricula of Islamic education, which was developed in the primary stage so that the field of mental development is more involved and field of technology thus ensuring its efficiency in General education curricula, and be a reference for textbook developers, to conduct a similar study on the evaluation of textbooks developed for different stages of all stages of public education.
