Product Description:

As in Hena Khan's Night of the Moon (2008), this richly illustrated offering follows a Muslim family through its observance of the "Month of Mercy." In lines of free-verse poetry, a girl describes watching for the first "silver sliver of brightness / . . . That is the Ramadan Moon." During subsequent days of fasting and prayer, the girl and her family "keep busy / With all sorts of good deeds," and children of all religious backgrounds will recognise similarities in the ways that the girl tries to translate faith into action. Other titles offer fuller explanations of terms such as Eid Day. But this book's poetic words and playful, patterned collage artwork capture both the solemnity and joy of religious practise and, in scenes of worshippers of every type and hue, show the diversity of the Muslim community around the world. Grades K-3. --Gillian Engberg --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
