Kindergarten-Grade 4—A girl describes the wave of excitement that spreads across the world when the Ramadan Moon is seen. She explains what happens throughout the month as people pray in mosques and listen to imams read verses from the Qur'an. The days are filled with good deeds, charitable offerings, caring, and politeness. The child tells readers that the greatest part of Ramadan is the Night of Power, a time of penitence, worship, and making wishes. The final days are counted for the coming of Eid-ul-Fitr. The story ends with the child sitting on a windowsill looking at the Moon and saying, "Please hurry back, my silver friend,/My beautiful Ramadan Moon." Robert's poetic style is captivating and enhanced by Adl's appealing and colorful multimedia illustrations. Throughout the story, the artist depicts the Moon, showing its waxing and waning phases as a family is seen worshipping and rejoicing.—Fawzia Gilani-Williams, An-Noor School, Windsor, Ontario

As in Hena Khan’s Night of the Moon (2008), this richly illustrated offering follows a Muslim family through its observance of the “Month of Mercy.” In lines of free-verse poetry, a girl describes watching for the first “silver sliver of brightness / . . . That is the Ramadan Moon.” During subsequent days of fasting and prayer, the girl and her family “keep busy / With all sorts of good deeds,” and children of all religious backgrounds will recognize similarities in the ways that the girl tries to translate faith into action. Other titles offer fuller explanations of terms such as Eid Day. But this book’s poetic words and playful, patterned collage artwork capture both the solemnity and joy of religious practice and, in scenes of worshippers of every type and hue, show the diversity of the Muslim community around the world. Grades K-3. --Gillian Engberg --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
