Most Ramadan books are too difficult to read to my young students and I was missing that perfect book about this holiday. Now I can read them a book the students can enjoy and 1st and 2nd graders can read it on their own too! Thanks for the book, if only it had arrived sooner.

Suitable for preschoolers, this book is written from the perspective of the younger sister who is still too young to fast, but notices what her older brother is doing. I'm not very impressed with the illustrations; they make the family look like they are dumb or simple minded.

This book is good for a general introduction of
Muslim holidays to kids. My son was able to read
this book to his first grade class. As a Muslim
Mom I want to be able to use story books to bring
knowledge about our religion to the kids in a fun way.

I purchased this for my 4 year old daughter prior to this past Ramadan. With this book she was able to understand and comprehend what is fasting and what are dates. It is very simple, sweet and to the point, just for kids. She loves it as much as I do. Great book to have on the shelf for when Ramadan comes.
