The Best Eid Ever - digital resources

A gorgeous picture book to introduce children to Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr written by acclaimed children’s author Sufiya Ahmed with beautiful, colourful illustrations by Hazem Asif.

“The Best Eid Ever is a fantastic resource, and one of very few available in narrative form for children. It is a great way to teach and raise children’s awareness and knowledge of the religious festival of Eid. Through detailed pictures with plenty of colour, and the vocabulary in the text, children can visually see and understand the traditional and cultural aspects of the festival. The back of the book also includes facts and a glossary for ‘Amazing Eid’, allowing children to further learn and explore the text detail.”
