The fun Together they decorate the bags they'll carry to collect the candies But along with the fun Noor remembers the true meaning of Ramadan spending time with family and sharing with those less fortunate School Library Journal says An excellent choice for units on diversity and multiculturalism. This book is a narrative non fiction book Noor the girl who is a main character in this story is very excited for celebrating Ramadan It is the time to make candies mixed with powder sugar and nuts make colorful bags with beads and ribbons wear beautiful dresses pray and read Koran and share food baskets to those who are poor Noor learns that Ramadan is for sharing blessings to those who are unfortunate and this is why Noor loves Ramadan so much This book is an excellent book for multiculturalism because there are no negative stereotypes of the represented group and the story tells that Muslims love to share blessings to others make candies and bags and watch a beautiful moon light as other cultural groups would love With this text as a teacher I will help my students to write down the words that are unfamiliar to them for example if students do not know what fanouses means from the book they will find the definition and write a story about it I recommend this book for students to read because it is culturally inclusive
