This is an excellent overview of Ramadan told from a child's point of view ... 1 April 2012
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Rashad smiled as he pointed and looked up into the starry sky. He was the first one in the family to spot the Ramadan moon. It was a special time of year that he was looking forward to. He was Muslim and "Ramadan is the ninth month in the year used for Muslim holidays. Rashad's father's smile was as big as his son's as they knelt on the lawn to look up at the new crescent moon. Islam was their religion and it was time for celebration because the day after the Ramadan moon arrived it would be time to think about Allah, to fast, and to help out poor people. Rashad would learn about many things, including Muhammad, mosques, and the Koran.

Rashad's mother lovingly stroked his head and tucked him into bed under his red bedspread with the bright yellow stars that night. Because the "calendar for Muslim holidays follows the first moon," that meant that he'd have to be on the alert to be ther first to see it every year. The next morning the family was up before sunrise to eat their breakfast. During the month of Ramadan people "fast between the hours of sunrise and sunset." Little kids like his sister and sick people didn't have to, but Rashad was now old enough to fast. It was an exciting time, a time to become close to Allah. He would watch for the moon and soon it would be time for Eid al-Fitr!

This is an excellent overview of Ramadan told from a child's point of view. I loved the gentle, excited flow of the book as Rashad talked about one of his favorite times of the year. Rashad, as well as other children who are learning about their religious heritage from books, will start to understand the origins of certain customs and rituals surrounding holidays such as Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr. There are numerous informative sidebars gracing these pages that give specific information about several Islamic customs. For example, in one we learn about the way people dress: "Many Muslims cover certain parts of their bodies in public. They dress this way to show respect to Allah." In the back of the book is an index, a glossary, an activity (Make a Moon Can) and additional recommended book and website resources to explore.

Great Read Aloud 21 Dec. 2012
By A.Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Rashad's Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr" proved to be a great 1st grade traditions read-aloud. My students and I learned a lot about this holiday. I enjoyed that it was a story with options. You could choose to read all or a couple of the details about the holiday as you progressed through the book.

Not what I expected 27 July 2014
By G. Antoine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I own many Ramadan and Eid children's books. This one is OK at best. The illustrations are good but not special. The narrative is what bothers me. It reads like a textbook chapter on Ramadan for kids, rather than a story line about a boy an his Eid experience. It's full of little comment boxes on each page explaining every detail of Muslim faith. We are a Muslim family, so I don't need these. I was expecting a cute story about a boy who celebrated Ramadan and Eid for the first time. For a non-Muslim, this might be okay, but I've found much better alternatives (Ramadan Moon, Under the Ramadan Moon, The Night of the Moon).
More Ramadan & Eid books please! 18 Feb. 2015
By Anelley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There aren't many books out there for Muslim kids, so we collect them all. Most of the books put out are for non-Muslim kids to teach them about a "different" culture/religion. That is how this book is. The family in the story is Muslim but throughout the book there are teaching blurbs. I thought they were distracting. But I guess they help those who don't know as much about Ramadan and Eid.

It's a cute book with cute illustrations. There isn't really a story. Rashad just learns/tells about Ramadan and Eid and how he celebrates it. It is different in that most of the Muslim books for English speaking audiences feature South Asian families. So seeing some diversity is good.

With so few options out there, this is a good addition to your Ramadan/Eid book collection.
Fantastic book! I was looking for something a little ... 25 Feb. 2015
By Sukayna - Published on Amazon.com

Fantastic book! I was looking for something a little less juvenile out there to read with my 3 year old and this is perfect. Educational, with a well written and nice story and teaching points (asides, drawings, etc) and she actually understands its relevancy in our lives. It is contemporary and not hokey or fobby as I find other Islamic books. Gave as gifts to family members with kids. Dear authors, write more books!! Thanks :)
