This little 26 page paperback book is not a lot to look at, and it really isn’t substantial in your hands either….but it comes with this little guy, who is Awesome!
And once Mr. Ramadhan Moon smiling at you, and you open the book, the only real complaint you’ll have is how can we support this book so that the book can become hardback, the pages bigger, and the font spaced out more. Yeah, it is fun, really fun.
Told from Mr. Moon’s perspective the story covers the basics about Ramadan, fasting, charity, praying, and Eid, but also incorporates the searching of the moon in both the Ramadan month sense, and in the hiding of the toy and finding it around your house activity gimmick. Much like the Christmas game of “Elf on the Shelf,” Mr. Ramadhan Moon wants to be found each day of Ramadan, and can also be found on each page of the book.
The book is written in rhyme, which often is forced, but its ambition is appreciated as a lot of information is conveyed. There is even a glossary of terms in the back.
The book is ordered through Etsy and I think will be a blast for kids toddler to 3rd grade. I’m planning to hide him daily this Ramadan and I’ve already read the book to my children who can’t wait to start a new Ramadan tradition.
Jazakallahu khayran for this review. I just placed an order for this—honesty, just for the moon. Fun, fun, fun!
Thank you for your reviews. You are such an important asset to our Muslim families and educators.
