Zahra really wants a little sister, and Ramadan seems like the perfect time to ask for that blessing! But when she loses her Teddy as her mother is packing away clothes to give to the poor, Zahra is upset. When she goes with her parents to volunteer at the shelter, she meets a little girl there that makes her wish she had Teddy, just so she can share him to cheer her up. By Eid time, Zahra learns that sometimes, Ramadan prayers come true in the most unexpected and beautiful ways…
Oh wow, I don’t want to spoil this book, but the twist at the end had me gasping and clutching my heart. It was written so beautifully and it touched my heart. It truly radiates the warmth of Ramadan and the way Ramadan is full of blessings, and it does so in such a deep and profound way. The themes of family and care and love are so beautiful and important. Again, I don’t want to spoil it but this is just a must have, and so relevant in todays times and amazingly written!!!
Wow, also what absolutely gorgeous illustrations as well! I felt like the house was a dollhouse and Zahra was an adorable doll! This book is a beautiful addition to our Ramadan bookshelf❤️
Def preorder and get your kids this beautiful Ramadan book!!!!❤️
