Ramadan is all about giving with no expectations. Adnan really wants to eat molokhaya on the first day of Ramadan with his family, but his mom is not cooking molokhaya in the kitchen! What will actually happen during the day, and will Adnan eat his favorite dish at the end? A beautiful story authored by the wonderful Haya Salah, illustrated by the talented Ali Elziny and published by Dar Al Yasmine that truly captures the spirit of Ramadan. Ages 4-8.
This is such a lovely story about community and the tradition of sharing food with others during Ramadan. My girls love it and my four year old has now declared mulukhiya to be her favorite food. Just like Adnan, she wants it for breakfast, lunch and dinner :) Like many of the books I have from this publisher, the language flows easily and feels natural.
I found that website through a fb adv.
And of course my curiosity took me to the website and on the website while scrolling I saw عدنان وطبق رمضان and for some reason I wanted that book so badly I was going to do the subscription but I was afraid that I wasn't going to get that specific book so I was REALLY GLAD to see that we can make a single item purchase. So I made the order and got the book. The kids were excited when they saw the book (8yo and 6yo) the front cover is really catchy. While reading they couldn't understand all the words because we use another dialect so I had to translate a little bit but they were drown to it and they were laughing so hard at what was happening to poor Adnan! And when we ended the book they were really sad and asked me to buy more book like this one! So now I'll be on the hunt for our next book!
