The Best Eid Ever
Aneesa and her grandmother prepare to celebrate this years Eid holiday. Aneesa is sad because her parents are away in Saudi Arabia, but Nonni has special plans to cheer her up. Nonnis surprises work their charm, and Aneesa finds some joy in the beautiful new Eid clothes from Pakistan and in her favorite dinner foods cooking on the stove.
A little of her cheer fades when she meets children who have lost all of their own belongings in a devastating fire. The brave and big-hearted Aneesa comes up with a plan that will bring the joy of the Eid holiday to her own family as well as her new friends.
A cultural awakening for curious spirits, this is a fabulous and educational picture book.
Jacobsens full-page, colorful illustrations show a mastery of light and shadow. They bring life to everyday household objects and parallel the emotions of the text perfectly.
A lovely addition to any childs bookshelf!
