By Asma Mobin-Uddin (Author) and Laura Jacobsen (Illustrator). Young readers and their families will learn about Eid, a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims every year, as well as the Hajj pilgrimage, when many Muslims travel back to Mecca for the Eid. This work is well written and beautifully illustrated. The Story is that Aneesa should be happy, but, her parents are thousands of miles away for the Hajj pilgrimage. To cheer her up, her Nonni gives her a gift of beautiful clothes, one outfit for each of the three days of Eid. At the prayer hall, Aneesa meets two sisters dressed in ill-fitting clothes for the holiday. She soon discovers the girls are refugees they had to leave everything behind when they left their native country to live in America. Aneesa, who can't stop thinking about what Eid must be like for them, comes up with a plan a plan to help make it the best Eid holiday ever. School Library Journal says: "[A] beautifully composed story. . . . This is a welcome contribution, giving much-needed visibility to a celebration observed by over ten million people in North America." Library Media Connection says: "After reading this book, children will have a greater appreciation for the Muslim culture and will have no problem realizing that love is an action word." Age Range: 7 - 9 years. Grade Level: Kindergarten - 4. Boyds Mills Press (2007), English, 32 pages.
