"The blend of the upbeat and challenging moments will spark discussion, and a final note fills in more about the holy month." --Booklist "Functions beautifully as both mirror for Muslim-American children and window for their non-Muslim friends... a worthwhile addition to the still-too-sparse literature for children about Muslim-Americans." --Kirkus Reviews "The author takes a realistic situation and addresses it in such a manner that those not familiar with Ramadan will have a better understanding of the holy month." --Library Media Connection "This is a beautiful tale of a child grasping her identity yet being able to embrace the differences around her. The story also embodies the forging of community spirit. This is a perfect resource for teaching about choices, sharing, and empathy." --School Library Journal
