“We’re so excited, that we can’t sleep.” / “All these presents, just for us.”
This is a very simple book about two siblings sharing their excitement over Eid and taking you through how they spend it. It’s written in a playful way. My favourite part is, “Off to the mosque for Eid prayers. There are so many people, that we’re a bit squashed. But Mama and Papa are close.” The real beauty of this book is the illustrations. Very cute with a whimsical look about them. The book shows a mixed race family, which is nice to see, and when they have family and friends over there are people off all different ethnic backgrounds. A nice addition to the bookshelf to get the little ones excited for Eid!
I feel this book is a little too simple (and boring) for children of around 4 and up but for infants it's perfect.
