Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Leggett
The Muslim holidays of Ramadan and Id Al-Fitr have joined Chinese New Year, Diwali and Mardi Gras in this "Best Holiday Books" series. The straightforward, thorough text has been reviewed by Islamic consultants. The author wisely notes that Allah is simply the Arabic word for God and does not mean a separate or different god, then uses the word God throughout the text. She offers a brief history of Muhammad and Islam as well as an explanation of the main tenets of the Islamic faith. Then, she explains the meaning and traditions of the holy month of Ramadan and its concluding celebration, Id Al-Fitr. The photos are modern and often show Muslim families or schoolchildren in the United States (e.g., at an East Texas Islamic community, at a Muslim parade in New York City, at the Islamic Center in Paterson, New Jersey). The author also notes that Biblical stories familiar to many young American readers (e.g., Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus) are also found in the Quran, the Islamic holy book. Although the writing is not especially fun or exciting, the photos are appealing and the information is accurate. The book would be a good addition to a school or public library, or one of the increasingly diverse classrooms where some children may celebrate Ramadan. The series includes a list of Internet resources, a glossary and a simple index that will be helpful to students learning early research techniques. Reviewer: Karen Leggett
School Library Journal

Gr 2-4- This well-organized book is filled with interesting facts and large, colorful photographs. Much to the author's credit, it is one of the few books that provides correct pronunciation for culturally specific words like Muslims ("MUS-limz"). Nearly half of the book discusses Muhammad, the five Pillars of Islam, mosques, minarets, and the Qur'an. The first Pillar, Shahadah-Declaration of Faith-is translated from Arabic as "There is no God but Allah...," which is confusing for a non-Arab audience. It would have been more accurate to say "There is no god but God" or "There is nothing worthy of worship except for God," since "Allah" is the Arabic term for God used by Arab Christians and Muslims alike. Discussion on Ramadan and Id al-Fitr exposes readers to a variety of culturally different Muslims living in America, the Middle East, and Asia. With only a minor shortcoming, this book is a valuable resource for introducing Islam and these two important holidays.-Fawzia Gilani-Williams, Oberlin Public Library, OH
