My First Ramadan
This book is a lovely gift for Ramadan!
Karen Katz uses a small child's viewpoint to explain the essentials of a traditional holiday.
With his father, a young boy reads in the Qur'an about Ramadan, the most sacred time of year for Muslims all over the world. He learns about the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and what he taught his followers.
Clear words and simple, colorful collage illustrations show the family together as the boy learns the meaning of Muslim customs, prayers, and practices. He decides that he is old enough to fast every day of the holy month, so after a big breakfast, he does not eat again until it is time for iftar, the evening meal; then the family goes to the mosque to pray.
Children will appreciate the warm, personal narrative, as well as the connections with Muslims all over the world.
