NIGHT of the MOON - Perfect Picture Book Friday

     This summer, while Perfect Picture Book Friday was on hiatus, Muslims celebrated the ninth month of the Islamic calendar known as Ramadan (June 18-July 16, 2015). Next year the holiday begins on June 6, so yes I'm a bit early for it. But it's never too early to enjoy a good book!
    
Title: NIGHT of the MOON - A Muslim Holiday Story
Author: Hena Khan

Illustrator: Julie Paschkis
Publisher: Chronicle, 2008
Intended age: 4-8
Themes: Holidays, Ramadan

First lines: "It was bedtime, and Yasmeen waited for her mom to read her a story as she did every night. But this night was different."

Synopsis: A seven-year old girl celebrates the month of Ramadan.

Why I like this Book: I don't know much about Ramadan. I knew that people fasted, but not much more. The story portrays a close knit loving family while explaining the holiday that they are celebrating, emphasizing the themes of family traditions and charity for others who are less fortunate. This book contains basic information so it probably isn't for members of the Muslim community who would know these things already.
The illustrator frames the spreads with lush mosaic patterns of teal and turquoise.

    1. I have a mosaic kit I purchased when we lived in the UK that is perfect for this. But paper mosaics (Scissor skills, anyone?) would be fun, and lantern cutouts.

  3. Great resource to share with non Muslims in the classroom. I had a number of Muslim kids in our school who fasted from junior high onwards. Those colors are exquisite!

    1. It was interesting on different sites to read information about when Muslim children start to fast. Some very early, some not until late teens. The philosophy of showing thankfulness is for all ages. :)

  5. Thanks for sharing this one, Wendy. You are right...a beautiful book is timeless. ;)
    I love that kids and parents who don't know anything about this holiday will find out something about it...and I think it is so very important for everyone to get exposure to difficult cultures...when we gain knowledge, we lose fear. And I also think it is important for Muslim children here in America to be able to read picture books books that feature their culture.
