By Karen Katz. It's a wonderful story from a child's viewpoint explaining the essentials of a special holiday. With his father, a young boy reads in the Qur'an about Ramadan, the a blessed time of year for Muslims all over the world. He learns about the Prophet Muhammed (S) 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. Ages 2 -5. Henry Holt and Co. (2007), Hardcover: 32 pages.
