Maymoona's Moon is a heartwarming picture book about waiting for Eid. Written by Razeena Omar Guta (@razeenareads) and illustrated by Zayneb Haleem (@idotdoodle), readers aged 3 to 8 years will feel the anticipation around the end of Ramadan
– the hullabaloo is contagious!
Eid-al-Fitr is a joyous time of year for Muslims. It marks the end to Ramadan, a holy month of fasting, praying and deep spirituality – so the build-up to Eid is exciting and exuberant. Families come together to celebrate with delicious feasts and gifts, but sighting the crescent moon is the first sign that Eid can begin. In this gorgeous story about anticipation, celebration and tradition, a young girl called Maymoona – self-proclaimed future astronaut – cleverly finds a way to be the first to see the crescent moon in the sky, and to announce that Eid has begun.
