Product description


"This special anthology about family traditions, sharing meals, giving presents, and delighting in the cultural uniqueness of people all over the world isn’t just for those who celebrate Eid; it’s for all who want to share and learn about the holidays."  ―

"The diversity within the collection is impressive, including several blended families and a recently converted one, and while the writing varies in style and quality, each story is engaging, full of emotion and thought. . . This thoughtful and uplifting volume will keep readers turning pages year-round; here's to many more." ―
Kirkus Reviews

"A range of diverse, multidimensional characters—among them Shia Muslim, converted Muslim, Algerian, Caribbean, and West African representation—results in a stimulating, celebratory read."  ―
Publishers Weekly

"Emotions seem to spill straight off the pages in this absolute triumph of a celebratory anthology." ―
School Library Connection

"A joyous title that radiates love. This much-needed collection is recommended as a first purchase for all libraries." ―
School Library Journal

"A delightful and varied collection of stories for middle-grade readers showcases a cross-section of Muslim experiences of the joyous Eid holidays." ―
Shelf Awareness

"Joyful reunions, irritating relatives, fancy clothes, and special, heartfelt gifts appear in many of the tales, giving an overall tone of warmth and playfulness, and even the stories that take a more somber approach end with possibilities of hope and optimism." ―
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
