Muslims all over the world observe Ramadan and the joyful days of Eid-ul-Fitr at the end of the month of fasting as the most special time of year. This lyrical and inspiring picture book captures the wonder and delight of this great annual event. Accompanied by illustrations inspired by Iranian art, the story follows the waxing of the moon from the first new crescent to full moon and waning until Eid is heralded by the first sighting of the second new moon. This book is for all children who celebrate Ramadan and those in the wider communities who want to understand why it is such a special experience for Muslims.
This creative and rhythmical book will engage children aged between three and eight years to truly capture the magic of the moon and what it represents in the holy month. A fantastic pre-Ramadan gift to introduce children to the concept of fasting in Ramadan; they will be thrilled with excitement for the month ahead." -Emel
