Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review In this well-presented series, young children are introduced to important holidays that their friends celebrate. Each book tells a story about a child celebrating the holiday with explanations within the story or in text boxes. Different facets of the holidays are shown: religious, cultural, traditional activities, etc. The cartoon-type illustrations add to the topics and portray multiethnic groups. An activity is included in each book. Lerner e-source is available for this series; it consists of a suggested lesson plan and two worksheets. --Library Media Connection --Journal In this inviting picture book, the first of a new Holidays and Special Days series, a preschooler talks about his Muslim religion with the focus on Ramadan and the meaning behind the holiday's practice and beliefs. 'Dad says Ramadan is a time to get closer toAllah. . . . Grown-ups fast between sunrise and sunset.' The brightly colored, uncluttered illustrations are true to the boy's viewpoint, at the mosque and at home, and colored boxed inserts explain more about the holiday observance and its meaning, including the role of Muhammad and that the calendar for Muslim holidays follows the moon. The boy tries to be good during the month of Ramadan ('my sister and I don't even fight'), just as he knows it is time to care for the poor. The climax is the big celebration of Eid when Ramadan is over. Young children of all faiths will find lots to talk about, and the back matter extends the text with a bibliography, glossary, and craft suggestions. --Booklist --Journal Emma's story reflects her family's African American and Russian American heritage (no mention that Russian Orthodox Easter usually falls on a different date than other Christian sects). Rashad and his Muslim family observe Ramada. Sarah prepares for her role in asking the Four Questions. Bright, cheerful illustrations will draw readers to these simple introductions; text boxes provide more details than the young narrators do. --The Horn Book Guide --Journal
