A sweet story about Ramadan narrated by a young child Rashad in a fun way.
Written by Lisa Bullard and illustrated by Holli Conger, Rashad’s Ramadan and Eid Al-Fitr is a beautiful book to explain the significance of Ramadan to all.
For Muslims, Ramadan is a time for fasting, prayer, and thinking of others. The main character of the book Rashad tries to be good all month. When it’s time for Eid al-Fitr, he feasts and plays!
Packed with gorgeous illustrations and written in simple language, this one is a great read for young kids below 6 years age group. It was interesting for me to know that Muslims observe Ramadan based on the lunar calendar. I know of many Hindu festivals that are observed based on Moon. And same for Christians too, who have festivals based on the full moon. So different, yet so similar.
And that’s the beauty of reading storybooks from different cultures. You get to know about different traditions, festivals, rituals, and more.
My son is slowly outgrowing picture books. But when it comes to special occasions, we still make it a point to read some books together.
Do give this one a try if you would like to read a cute story about Ramadan. If you’re looking to gift a child this book, you may find it on Amazon here.
This one is also available as read-aloud by different YouTubers. We loved this version by Mr. Means Music.
