Join us for a special month of celebration at Multicultural Children’s Book Day where we will be focusing on the Muslim holiday of Ramadan June 5th-July 5th 2016 as a way to bring awareness and understanding about our Muslim neighbors via the pages of children’s literature.
30 Days of Ramadan: Understanding Our Friends is a celebration of children’s literature which includes characters and storylines that celebrate being Muslim. Books profiled will include topics like Muslims and the religion of Islam, books which specifically look at the Ramadan holiday and/or the authors that are Muslim.
To celebrate this event, we have a linky HERE.
And we have a FREE Ramadan poster!
And we have children’s book giveaways; many with multiple chances to win! Be sure and check back all month long to see the Ramadan-themed books we are giving away!
p.s. I have #OwnVoices Ramadan books for kids here:
BEST #OWNVOICES CHILDREN’S BOOKS: My Favorite Diversity Books for Kids Ages 1-12 is a book that I created to highlight books written by authors who share the same marginalized identity as the characters in their books.
