Gr 1-4-After presenting the most basic facts about Islam, Douglass focuses on the celebration, beginning with the new moon of the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and continuing through the ensuing feast of Eid al-Fitr. Reeves's abundant, framed illustrations in pastel colors provide detailed windows on the observance and show adults and children in traditional and Western dress, in various settings.
