Reviews

"Will create a curiosity about traditions that are less familiar to some readers, but will also generate joy and connection for children who know the practices. A delightful read that teaches students about Ramadan and emphasizes the diversity in the Islamic world. Definitely a go-to for librarians and teachers." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"Moon celebrates with Muslims of different cultures, skin tones, ages, body types, and abilities actively engaged in evening activities of Ramadan, including good deeds and charity. Women are depicted with and without hijab, in various styles including niqab, while young girls are not portrayed wearing headscarves. Inviting... Upbeat... Sweet." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Detailed, colorful. The diversity of the Muslim population is evident in the illustrations, making this a welcome addition to shelves of books about celebrations." -- Booklist

"What a stunning debut book from Natasha Khan Kazi! Kazi's lines are lyrical, and as magical as the moon art she has created...The art is dreamy and has hues like the purple veil of twilight that will encourage readers to linger over the pages. I loved how the Moon looks on Earth, and each page travels to a different and beautiful part of the world celebrating Ramadan. This story felt like a cozy hug from the Moon! For teachers, this book is a must-have. Muslim children will feel pride to see themselves reflected back in these stunning pages." -- Reem Faruqi, author of Unsettled and Golden Girl
