I so enjoyed this collection and all of the heart that was put into it.

I took my time reading this as I didn’t want the stories to run together, and I wanted to sit with each one and think about what each family had experienced.

This anthology is appropriate for all audiences, of any age, and I highly recommend reading it with your child. There are lessons to be gained from each author’s account of their Eid celebration and we could all be more open-minded when it comes to cultural customs from around the world.

Definitely pick this up - it is perfect for reading around the holiday season.
