“I hope [this book] makes it into the hands of Muslim children who need it and any child curious about Ramadan and Islam. Parents, this is how we teach love.”
“To help overcome Islamophobia and foster mutual respect, acceptance and understanding, teachers, parents, community leaders and librarians can use books like these to educate children about Muslims while enhancing religious literacy.”
—The Huffington Post
About the Author
Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.

For children of other faiths it can bridge understandings and expand their minds to other traditions and experiences. The book is not preachy at all and Curious George does not join the fast. His friend Kareem decides he's ready to fast that year and Curious George helps him keep his mind off food until it's time to break fast. I grew up reading Christmas, Hanukkah, Chinese New Year and other faith and cultural tradition books and it only helped me understand others better and know more about the world at a young age.
