Welcome Ramadan! tells the story of two playful siblings, Bilal and Maysa, as they eagerly await the coming of Ramadan and their interesting reactions to the changes in their daily routine throughout the fasting month.
It is written in simple prose which makes it fun for children to read the rhyming words on each page. As the story unfolds, the spirit of Ramadan, such as patience, perseverance, self-discipline, sacrifice, and compassion and sympathy for those that are less fortunate, are cleverly woven into the daily activities that the two children experience.
Come join Bilal and Maysa in welcoming Ramadan!
About the author:
Lila Assiff-Tarabain, who lives in Windsor, Canada, has a Master of Science degree from University of Alberta. She wrote this book so that parents and teachers who are not familiar with Ramadan, will have a handy resource to use at home or in the classroom.
There is a Parent/Teacher Guide at the end of the book with basic information about Ramadan in the Muslim calendar and its significance in the life of a Muslim.
“And every day at each sunset, the fasting Muslim breaks his fast. We break the fast on milk and dates, then eat the meals that mommy makes.”
