Eid Breakfast at Abuela's Book Review

Title: Eid Breakfast at Abuela's
Author: Mariam Saad
Illustrator: Chaymaa Sobhy
Publisher: Prolance Publishing
Recommended for: 4-6 year old

Join Sofia and her mom and dad who spend Eid - the Islamic holiday celebrating the end of Ramadan - with her Mexican grandmother, who is not Muslim but chooses to throw them a festive breakfast which includes traditional Mexican food, decorations, and activities.

The book includes many Spanish words and a glossary as well to introduce the reader to simple words in Spanish and even Arabic.

If you're looking for an Eid story to read to children then this one is a little different. This is a heartwarming story of family not just about Eid only. It's about a little Muslim girl, Sofia, who spends Eid with her parents as well as her non-Muslim grandmother and cousins. It shows how we can celebrate Eid and be with relatives who are not Muslims.

Fatimah's First Fasting Day Review

Book review
Author: Umm Ahmad
Recommended for: 5-6 year old

Fatimah is so excited, this year will be her very first Ramadan! But there is a lot to learn so she will be ready. Follow along as her parents teach her about the many blessings and rewards of fasting. Also included are the rules of fasting, and adi’yaa made when sighting a new moon and after breaking fast!

There are a growing number of books for preschoolers about fasting, especially the first fast. It takes the reader from suhur to iftar. What I like most about this book is that it includes all the sunnah of fasting. From what dua to say at the sighting of a new moon to the breaking of the fast, and all the duas in between. This is also a guide on the dos and donts of fasting and the rewards for fasting. It is comprehensive.
