Storytime: Ramadan

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Today we read,

Ramadan by David F. Marx

This book teaches children what Ramadan is and what Muslims do during this blessed month using very simple sentences and photographs from around the Muslim world. I was pleased by the accuracy of the information as it focuses not on cultural practices but religious ones alhamdulillah. 

The only thing I was not happy with was the cover of the book. The word "Rookie" in Rookie Reader is a pumpkin with facial features cut out. This is from Halloween yes? I blurred that out.  

The text level of this book is for children ages 4-8 (pre-k thru grade 1) and also makes a nice read aloud for younger children masha'Allah.


  1. Alhamdulillah, we're on the lookout for others insha'Allah *smile*.
