There are several books already on the shelf about Ramadan. But, this one offers the feel of Ramadan and the spirit of Ramadan along with the process of Ramadan. "Each night they come, unfailing, This seething congregation, To reflect on the words of their Lord in silent celebration." Follow the moon through the month and experience the charity, the thoughtfulness and the humility of the process of fasting and giving to others that give meaning to this special time in the Muslim religion. The illustrations are simple figures brought to life by collage. They create a gentle feeling that invites us to learn and not to fear something that is different. Very poetic.
