Summary
Fasting, praying, and charitable acts mark the Islamic holiday of Ramadan, which ends with the festival of Id-ul-Fitr when the fast is broken. Readers of this book will learn the history and meaning of these holidays as well as the activities that take place during this reflective time of year.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Holidays and Festivals series continues with this clear introduction to Islam's holy month. The format is as utilitarian as always: large photos dominate the top two-thirds of each page, while a single line of large-print text delivers information: It is a time to feel close to Allah, or God. Tackling both cultural and religious differences is no mean feat, but Dickmann succeeds with a dogged approach that puts each building block of understanding in its place: People pray during Ramadan. They pray in a mosque. Even lesser known to Americans is the celebration of Id-ul-Fitr at the end of Ramadan, and it is here where the book's photographs are particularly effective, with festivities occurring both outside ornate mosques and within humble homes that, aside from the clothes being worn, will resemble those of many young readers. A Look and See page emphasizes cross-cultural connections by showing a new moon and candy and asking, Have you seen these things? They make people think of Ramadan and Id-ul-Fitr. A picture glossary and index close.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
