Ramadan, the month of fasting, Doesn't begin all at once. It begins with a whisper And a prayer And a wish.
This lyrical and inspiring picture book captures the wonder and joy of this great annual event, from the perspective of a child. Accompanied by Iranian inspired illustrations, 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.
Written and illustrated by Muslims, this is a book for all children who celebrate Ramadan and those in the wider communities who want to understand why this is such a special experience for Muslims.
The story of this book is very nice but I returned it as one of the double pages had Quranic ayats in the background. I thought that this could cause disrespect to the Quran, so please be aware of this when buying.
