Ramadan Around the World: Book Review by Muslim Mommy Blog
Ramadan Around the World
Ramadan Around The World is a fantastic Ramadan book written by Ndaa Hassan ⠀ First off, the pictures by @azramomin are vibrant and expressive; they keep the children’s attention focused on the book the entire time. This book is so beautiful, it deserves to be a part of your Ramadan decor!⠀ ⠀ The story is about the Ramadan Moon and how it travels around the World to observe Ramadan in the different countries and cultures. Starting with the US and ending in Australia, the author has done a fantastic job in showing the diversity of Muslims around the globe.⠀ ⠀ I love how the book shows Muslim children actively celebrating and participating in Ramadan. It inspired my own children to want to help with getting ready by decorating and baking Ramadan treats. ⠀ ⠀ Food is a huge part of celebrating Ramadan, with each culture having a specific food/drink they make to welcome the holy month. The different foods represented in this book represent the different cultures, and they are described and pictured so perfectly that it almost seems like you can smell them off the page! ⠀ ⠀ You can literally feel the Ramadan spirit when you read this book, and the decor included on the pages is fantastic for exciting your children about decorating for Ramadan. ⠀ ⠀ There are actually a lot of good ideas on how to decorate using this book as inspiration plus free printables on the Ramadan Around the World page. I will be posting some of them that I printed in another post today.⠀ ⠀ The book was inspired by the Ayah in the Quran:⠀ “And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge.”⠀ ⠀ I love that this book introduces our children to diverse Muslim characters and teaches them about different cultures. In addition, some of the characters were special needs and some had disabilities. This teaches our children (and us) that all children want and should be included in the Ramadan festivities and community gatherings.⠀ ⠀ Get your book at Crescent Moon Store for 22 dollars.
