Synopsis

Sweet Dates to Eat A Ramadan and Eid Story by Jonny Zucker

A simple introduction to the Muslim season of Ramadan and Eid. Follow a family as they fast each day, go to the mosque on the Night of Power, and enjoy a delicious feast to celebrate the beginning of Eid. This pre-school series introduces young children to world religions and focuses on the way the festival is celebrated today. There is detailed historical and cultural information at the end for parents and teachers.

Reviews

Each book presents an important religious festival in an appealing format. Appropriate bold and colourful illustrations cover each double page spread. These help highlight the cultural and religious nature of the festivals. The texts are brief and simple, telling the stories in a way that naturally explains the rationale behind the respective festivals through the activities and statements made by the children. Books for Keeps
