I bought this for my 6-year-old recently and found it to be far too short and far too basic for her age. There are only a handful of pages with a small amount of text on each and my daughter read it in no time and complained that it was over so quickly. I would've liked a bit more text. I think it would be ideal for a child of 4 or 5 as a very basic introduction to the subject. I've therefore put it away for another child of appropriate age.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, not great, very simple 19 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as an Eid present but when it arrived I found it was so simple and basic that I had to buy a couple of extra gifts as I felt embarrassed about giving such a simple book. It is pretty short and there is not much of a story to it. The illustrations are good but if I had been able to flick through this in a book shop rather than buying it online I probably wouldn't have purchased it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that great 11 Oct 2011
There is an absolute dearth of books written for young muslim children, so I'm loathe to diss any book in that area. But this book is still distinctly average. Nothing majorly wrong with it. However it is suprisingly short. Also the story, about what happens in one muslim household during Eid, doesn't really engage. Neither does the artwork. Was read a couple of times, but unlikely to become a favourite.
