"Board books about religious holidays can be tricky if the book attempts to explain too many things. We’ve all seen the ones that just fill their pages with text, without any consideration for the age of the child readers. So a lot of what impressed me about Khan and Lodge’s book here is how well it breaks down its explanations into these succinct, careful sentences.

Take, for example, the two-page spread where the only text apparent reads, “There are some people who do not have to fast.” And rather than launch into a long explanation of those cases, there are four situations that will allow parents to discuss these exceptions with their kids.

This is a book that knows when to lean on its art and when not to. This is also one of those rare board books with backmatter. It’s clearly there for the adults, which is interesting. Oh! And if you aren’t getting this out of the library then guess what? It comes with stickers!! Cool Ramadan stickers. Do you want cool Ramadan stickers? Yeah, you do." - School Library Journal Blog
