Deborah Heiligman's series : Holidays around the world 29 Aug. 2007
By Kim - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Deborah Heiligman's series : Holidays around the world is a good introduction to children unfamiliar with the holiday.

The pictures are amazing and well laid out. For someone who celebrates Eid, the pictures will seem incomplete because there are so many more aspects than can be represented in a 32 page book. But for someone who has no idea about Ramadan and Islam, this is a very good introduction. ITs also extremely easy for children to read on their own.

Perfect for Children 10 Oct. 2007
By Katydid - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book as an Eid-al-Fitr gift for my 9 year old step-daughter. I think it perfectly suits what I was shopping for: a simple explaination of what we do, why we do it and photographs of Muslims around the world who fast, pray, read Qur'an and celebrate just like we do. The book, writing, and all of the photographs are beautiful. At the end, there is a section with some "extras" where it explains the five pillars of Islam, the lunar calendar, dates of Ramadan for the next few years, recipes, etc. I know my step-daughter will enjoy this book and share it with friends. I would recommend this book to Muslim families or anyone who wants to share this important piece of Islam with children.

Celebrate Ramadan & Eid Al-Fitr 27 Aug. 2007
By Diana Rohini LaVigne - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Title: Celebrate Ramadan & Eid Al-Fitr: with praying, fasting, and charity

Author: Deborah Heiligman

Published by: National Geographic Society

Review By: Diana Rohini LaVigne, Indian Life & Style Magazine

Beautifully photographed and impeccably written, National Geographic Society has added a much-needed book to their `Holidays Around the World' series. With the current state of confusion about the Muslim community, especially in America, Celebrate Ramadan & Eid Al-Fitr brings light to the rituals Muslim celebrate and united which includes praying, fasting and giving charity. Ramadan is a time for family, community and celebrating religious beliefs.

With breathtaking photos that depict the dedication of Muslims worldwide during this sacred holiday time, readers will be delighted with the simple explanations of the complex religious rituals. It's not only a book for teenagers but also for adults.

Towards the end of the book, there is a useful informational section called more about Ramadan. It offers facts about the holiday, more about the five pillars of Islam, an explanation of the Muslim Calendar, recipes to try, and a glossary for reference.

A wonderful book to explore, understand and comprehend the dynamic and important celebration of Ramadan. It should be required reading for high-school teenagers in America and accompany the other books in National Geographic Society's `Holidays Around the World' series.

Beautiful Book and Very Informational 14 Dec. 2012
By Maliyah - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book has beautiful photographs and interesting information on the religion of Islam and the holiday Eid. I especially loved the fact that this author highlighted photos of Muslims living here in the United States. Sometimes we tend to forget that Islam is a religion followed by millions of Muslims here in the United States. I enjoyed this book, and my kids enjoyed this book. This is a must have for people who want to learn more about Muslims, Ramadan and Eid.

Great resource for teaching preschoolers 16 Dec. 2012
By Leo Chipmunk - Published on
Format: Paperback
I used this book to show pictures and read some of the text to preschoolers at a Montessori school. They loved seeing pictures of people around the world celebrating this holiday. Being Montessori children, they are exposed to different cultures and places around the world so they appreciated this book. I am not sure if the book would be as engaging to children who have not been exposed to different cultures.
