The sighting of the moon’s first crescent begins the month of Ramadan for Muslims all over the world. This vibrantly illustrated story invites children to experience the traditions of the month through the eyes of a seven years old Pakistani-American girl named Yasmeen, who watches each night as the moon grows and shrinks and finally disappears. When the moon’s first crescent reappears, it’s time to celebrate the Night of the Moon and the gift-giving holiday of Eid.
