Reviews

Clear words and simple, colorful collage illustrations show the family together as the boy learns the meaning of Muslim customs, prayers, and practices. . . . Children will appreciate the warm, personal narrative, as well as the connections with Muslims all over the world. --Booklist

Upbeat and informative . . . With her signature mixed-media and collage artwork depicting people with large, open, friendly faces, Katz accents a solid and inviting introduction to these holidays. --Publishers Weekly
