Fast Not Food Book Review


Title: Fast Not Food: A Book of Shapes
Author: Jameela Ho
Format: Kindle
Age: 2-5 year old

Learn some shapes with Omar and Ehsan as they try not to eat during their fast in Ramadan.

Fast Not Food was originally a board book. It was book number 3 of a set of 5 from the Beginning to Learn Series. It was printed in 2008 but have since ran out of stock. 

It was a popular set of books to read to young children as it taught them about basic concepts such as numbers, letters, shapes, colours and transportation through the pillars of Islam.

This particular book, Fast Not Food, teaches children about the three basic shapes, namely the square, triangle and circle, from the pillar of fasting. 

As you can see from the front cover, one of the child, Omar, can only see food in everyday shaped objects wherever he goes. This is because they are fasting. How does his cousin Ehsan help him to not think about food when he fasts? Your child will find out as he or she look for the shapes on each page.

2 page view from the board book.
The kindle version will have a one page view and have pop up interactions.

To complement the Fast Not Food book and help your child with learning the circle shape, I have created this printable circles activity book for you to download.

These are the pages inside this activity book, well it's really six worksheets. They will help your child to recognise, trace, draw and cut circles.
