Bring the magic of Eid into your homes with these 9 beautiful books on Ramzan for kids.

Ramzan is a special time at Muslim homes. My 6-year-old loves this period, especially the evenings, when we have special Iftaar feast every single day. Since she loves her books, and the best way to introduce the concept of Eid is through Ramzan books for kids, here’s how I taught her about this festival.

We all know that this is a month where we fast from sunset to sunrise,every single day. There are many other things that we do during Ramzan, besides fasting, which children are curious about, and books beautifully make this time come alive for kids. Listed below are some amazing books I have been reading with my little one, and we love them.

3. Ramadan Moon by Na’ima B. Robert
