Under the Ramadan Moon

Under the Ramadan Moon

Regular price R 110.00

By Sylvia Whitman

This simple picture book celebrates the coming of Ramadan and shows a family’s activities taking place “under the moon, under the moon, under the Ramadan moon.” Though the rhythm varies a bit, the title phrase is repeated in slightly varied forms throughout the text. Large, lyrical pictures on double-page spreads illustrate lines such as “We speak kind words / and stop bad habits / under the moon,” or “We give to the poor / and read Qur’an / under the moon,” and “We hang bright lights / and bake sweet treats / under the Ramadan moon.” In a series of satisfying scenes with glowing colors and rounded forms, the artwork... warmly depicts a family’s activities at home and at the mosque. The appended author’s note provides background information about Ramadan’s significance as a serious yet happy time for Muslims. A handsome, family-centered Ramadan picture book for young children. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan
