Peg and Cat: The Eid Al-Adha Adventure
I was honestly absolutely blown away by this amazing Eid-Al-Adha book and there were so many reasons that me and my children loved it!⠀ ⠀ One main reason why I loved this book was the Math learning involved. Concepts such as greater than and less than were taught, as well as fractions and other basics. The way that they were taught was fun for my kids and stuck with them, making their learning experience super fun.⠀ ⠀ The pictures and characters are fun and cute in the book (with a hijabi character proud of her hijab!) It was awesome seeing my kids read a mainstream PBS KIDS book with Muslim characters and about Eid! There is also a song/video about the book on youtube that they enjoyed watching. Mainstream shows including Muslims really helps my kids feel like they belong in America and it warms my heart to see them feel included❤️⠀ ⠀ The main Islamic idea that my kids learned from the book was about the sacrifice of Eid Al-Adha. The kids were taught that One-Third of the Eid sacrifice goes to the family, One-Third to neighbors, and One-Third to those with less (the poor). This idea stuck with my kids, and they learned how important it is in our religion and our holiday to give to the poor, and not make it all about receiving gifts ourselves. This being included in a mainstream book also shows people not familiar with Islam how beautiful our religion is in caring about those less fortunate, and teaches people to care about others. ⠀ The inside covers (the wrap that comes over the book) included actual math problems for the kids to solve. I have never actually seen a cover of a children’s book serve as an activity, so this was pretty cool. ⠀ The illlustrations are beautiful, the words are fun and engaging, and kids finished listening to the book and became really excited about Eid-Al-Adha!⠀ ⠀ Get yours now from www.siraj.co
