Ramadan (Holidays) – School Library Journal

This title succeeds where others have been undermined by cultural bias. An excellent addition.

Holidays Set 3 – School Library Journal

Brief chapters give readers broad summaries of these holidays–their origin or meaning, how they are celebrated, traditions today, and “important words.” Color photographs with descriptive captions give further explanations, while the texts are presented in simple sentences in a large font.
