Book Sharing Monday

Today's book is Night of the Moon: A Muslim Holiday Story by Hena Khan, illustrated by Julie Paschkis.

As you can see we wanted to learn a bit more about Ramadan and the holiday of Eid.  I have very glad to have picked this book as it answered most all of the initial questions my children had from reading the book we shared last week.

It's told from a child's perspective and not only gives us information about the month of Ramadan but also gives information about the moon cycles.  The author's note at the end of the book give further explanations.  There is a glossary with pronunciation guide and definitions.

We will be looking for a few more books about Islam and look forward to talk to some of our Muslim friends about how they celebrate this special month.
