Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Book Published earlier this year, Hena Khan's A Night of the Moon is a book that provides a good overview of the meanings and festivities behind the Muslim holidays of Ramadan and Eid, through the eyes of a little girl named Yasmeen. There are some beautiful colourful illustrations that the artist Julie Paschkis says were inspired by the art of Islamic tiles. The illustrations alone are worth purchasing the book as there are tons of things for kids to pick out and look at. As well, Khan's story is easy to follow and any child who is interested in the Muslims holidays can learn. There is also a simple Glossary the back for easy reference and an Author's Note providing more information for people who want to learn more.
