    1 thought on “Ramadan Moon”

    1. I liked the book - I liked the flow and rhythm of the words, and the pictures were definitely interesting. And I know more about Ramadan now than I did beforebut I don't think I know enough. I liked the voice of the child explaining what a family does during Ramadan - the prayers, the meals after sundown, the charity - but I would have liked a note in the back explaining a smidge about why.(Granted, a Muslim family would probably already know this, but it would be nice all the same!)

    2. A lovely picture book that tells the tale of Ramadan and Eid el-Fatir. Beautifully illustrated with a decoupage style overlaid with illustrations. The only criticism I have of this book is that all the women wear the hijab, which is not true of Islam. This small bit of stereotyping takes this book down a notch.

    3. This is a more lyrical celebration of Ramadan than the previous picturebook I read ("Ramadan," Ghazi). I love the illustrations, which delightfully combine paper collage and drawing to evoke a homey feel but remains modern. My one quibble about the illustrations was the lack of diversity when portraying the wider Muslim community. It's especially puzzling given that the author definitely has African ancestry. It's probably due to publishers' annoying habit of jobbing writers and illustrators wit [...]

    4. Finally a fantastic book about Ramadan. The collage and ink pictures in this book are exquisite! The text offers a lively and poetic description of the celebration of Ramadan in a child's voice filled with excitement. Ramadan Moon would be a perfect read aloud for a diverse audience. This book will help kids who are not Muslim understand Ramadan while helping validate the experiences of children who are Muslim. A teacher's dream book!

    5. It was the illustrations that got me on this one. I love them. All that beautiful, colorful, textured paper combined with a bit of coloring and black line drawing. There are a lot of fabric scraps cleverly worked in that add more color and texture and even pages from the Quran are used as a background (I think that’s okay? I’ll defer to the illustrator there and assume she knew what she was doing). It’s all so charming. The colors are bright and friendly and the people are darling. I have [...]

    6. Personally I really liked this book. I thought the language used was nice and the illustrations look great too, but not both of my children share my excitement (as is the case with so many Muslim children's books unfortunately)! My seven year old son did like it but he wouldn't pick it up himself and because my 3 year old daughter doesn't show too much interest with regard to the text or the illustrations throughout, we haven't picked it up since I ordered it in Ramadan!If you're looking for som [...]

    7. Ramandan Moon is about the acts of fasting, charity and prayer during Ramandan (a significant period in the islamic calendar). Narrating in the first person a girl takes us through the month of Ramadan illustrating the acts that are fulfilled during this special month. I enjoyed reading this book as the author builds up the excitement of Ramadan and the celebrations of Eid which is felt throughout the book. In addition, it challenges stereotypes as the family in the story are depicted of white e [...]

    8. The thing I liked most about this book were the illustrations. However, since I am not very knowledgeable about Ramadan, I might not have appreciated the book to its fullest. It stroke me as a bit restrictive for its audience, as I cannot imagine a child who does not celebrate Ramadan to be very excited by this book. Furthermore, there are only girls portrayed in the book, which makes it even harder for boys that know little or nothing about Ramadan to empathize. However, a very good book to tea [...]

    9. A lovely picture book to introduce the Islamic month of Ramadhan and the celebration of Eid that follows. The illustrations are colourful and have a collage-type effect, which will appeal to younger readers. The language used is easy to understand and provides an understanding of what Muslims do during Ramadhan and some of the reasons as to why (feeling grateful, doing good deeds, remembering God).

    10. There's something delicate, understated, and calm in the conveying of the story and explanation in this book. While a children's book with cheerful illustrations reflecting the often bustling nature of its days, it also shows conveys the quiet times of connecting with God and with ourselves in others. A unique addition to any multifaith collections, I find it tells the story of Ramadan so both children and adults can enjoy.

    11. A beautiful book explaining fasting, charity and prayer during the holy month of Ramadan and Eid celebrations. Na'ima B Roberts' books are always worth looking out for, but British-Iranian illustrator Shirin Adl is new to me. Interestingly she portrays the family in the book as white and red-haired, emphasising that Islam is a world wide religion. Highly recommended for Y2+ for story time and RE, especially since Ramadan starts soon.

    12. Another good book that symbolizes cultural diversity. Ramadan is a Muslim-Islamic practice, and it's good for kids to be surrounded with different cultures and see the bigger picture. This book does a good job showing what the culture does at the time of Ramadan.

    13. A young girl tracks the phases of the moon and her activities during Ramadan. Rich with collage illustrations.

    14. I think the language in Going to Mecca is slightly more powerful, but I still very much enjoyed this lyrical walk through one girl's Ramadan.

    15. This book follows a community of Muslims through the month of Ramadan. We learn of the traditions and feelings of Muslims throughout this holy month.Ramadan Moon is a multicultural book, as it centers around a typically underrepresented group in literature (Muslims). The text and pictures clearly represent Muslims as being of all colors, shapes, and sizes around the word and portray them as a peaceful people, who celebrate family, spirituality, and charity.I would use this book to teach about th [...]
