" I read this boom to my little ones...they liked it but I had to change some of the wording in it as I read the book to them, like the words magic and music. " said.

" Cute book to introduce kids to how Muslims celebrate their religious holidays, in this case Ramadan. This book is suitable for ages 3-8. " said.

" Share with your child the traditions of Ramadan, from the beginning of the celebration to the end. The story includes colorful illustrations and helpful pronunciation guides (sprinkled throughout the text), along with the descriptions of meals, prayer times, gatherings, and beliefs. The use of collage and mixed media, along with a diverse color palate, add to the story. " said.

" Typical of other Katz books, this one if filled with large headed cartoon people and explores a type of diversity--the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. The book explains to young children what the holiday is about and the typical practices. It also shares Arabic words such as suhoor which describes the large breakfast that is made each morning before dawn and iftar, the evening meal. " said.

" I love reading children's book about different cultures and holidays because it goes to show that children can learn about different cultures as well and it can be fun to learn about them. Ramadan is a holiday that I know very well because my big sister is Muslim and a lot of my coworkers are Muslim as well. This is a great book to read to children. They need to learn to be diverse and expand their horizons as far as other religions and cultures. " said.

" Not quite as charming as My First Chinese New Year. The vocabulary is nettlesome, even though pronunciation guides are included. It feels more like an explanation than an experience from the perspective of a tot, like the Chinese one. Also, explaining "Islam" as meaning "peace" might work if it were a component of a definition. Why shy away from the "submission" meaning or something more along those lines? Still, the page with the Mosque visit at night was especially lovely. " said.

"My first Ramadan can be used to educate children about a holiday that Muslims celebrate. Educating children on different religions, beliefs, and traditions is important to expand their knowledge and help them understand others that might be different from themselves. I really like that this book not only was interesting by also the author let us know how to pronounce words that we might not be used to seeing. The pictures are very colorful and appealing and give us detail about what Muslims wear and what their practices look like. This book was well written and illustrated and gave a great look into the traditions that the Muslims have for Ramadan. My favorite picture was the one of the mosque where they go to pray. This picture portrays such a beautiful place. The cool thing about this story is that is shows how this practice brings people together and we see that also in the picture by a group of people standing outside of the mosque." said.

" This picture book provided a simple representation of the holiday, Ramadan, through a young child's lenses. The sentence structure was short and a little choppy, which is why I did not enjoy the book as much. I liked the few pronunciations provided on to how pronounce unfamiliar Islamic words and the illustrations were bright and unique. " said.
