" Great illustrations, nicely set out. " said.

" I thought this was a good basic description of Ramadan, but G thought it was too "little kiddish." Nice bright simple illustrations. " said.

" A great book to use to promote a cultural diversity and appreciation for all holidays within the classroom. This is another book from Lisa Bullard that shares information about a holiday celebrated around the world: Islamic holiday of Ramadan and Eid. I would love to read this book to children around the time of this holiday so that children gain knowledge about this cultural celebration as well. Invite a guest speaker or student to share. Cute illustrations! " said.

"Nice, colorful book that touches on the basics (who, how, when, why, where) of celebrating Ramadan. Probably a better title for those families who don't celebrate who'd like to know more than for Muslim families, though it's always nice to have your own faith reflected in a book. Table of contents, topical index, glossary, bibliography/webliography, plus a "make a moon can" activity to collect money for "people who don't have enough to eat." This may be my favorite part of the book, since it looks so much like an activity any other family (religious or non-religious) might participate in, too; it's a very concrete connection among faiths and practices. Part of the Cloverleaf Books: Holidays and Special Days series, which includes Chinese New Year, Easter, Cinco de Mayo, and Passover. " said.

"I like this little book. Not knowing a great deal about Ramadan, it helps to understand why and how Muslims celebrate. I have heard of the health benefits of fasting, and am thinking of participating next year.

Good starter for helping kids, and some adults, understand Ramadan. I liked the diversity of the figures in the book. Rashad is brown skin in complexion, however, there are Muslims in the book that are represented as white and in between. There is a craft at the end of the book, making this book especially great for a storytime or a classroom reading. The glossary in the back is helpful for those that may have trouble with the words. There is also a bibliography for more information.

" A great introduction to Ramadan for Preschool through 2nd grade. Includes a glossary and resources for more information. " said.
