    3. A fun board book to explain Ramadan to children. Curious George has a friend named Kareem who will be fasting during the day. Curious George does not fast himself, but he helps his friend Kareem throughout the day, and he joins in with the fun after the sun goes down. This book does a good job explaining the fasting, the breaking of the fast, and sharing with others. It helps explain another faith, in this book the tradition of Ramadan, in a children-like manner.

    4. We liked this book. Now that I have a preschooler, it seems smart to introduce other cultures to kids through their favourite characters such as this curious monkey. However, this book does not have a story or even some simple dialogues or conversations. It is basically an explanation of Ramadan rituals. We liked the illustrations as well.

    5. A good book for all the Curious George fans, as George helps his friend Kareem with his first fast. It is informational book along with a good story about helping a friend. It has age appropriate language and provides children information about fasting, while keeping it interesting with the familiar character Curious George. Many children will learn new things about a different culture and traditions while reading this book. I always enjoy books by Hena Khan, so I was happy to see her contributi [...]

    6. Cute book introducing children to Ramadan and Eid. Not your typical board book as it has a lot of words but it has tabs for the different pages which is neat. So glad to see families checking out this book!

    7. I grew up on Curious George books and think this is a wonderful introduction to Ramadan for young children, through rhyme.

    8. "It's Ramadan, Curious George" is a children's book about how Curious George is helping his friend Kareem prepare for Ramadan. The boys go through Ramadan procedures such as preparing the food, donating to others, and giving gifts. George is suprisingly not as silly as he has been in his other books. This book would be good for teacher younger elementary grades because it does not go into depth about the meaning of Ramadan, it just gives the reader some ideas about what people do to prepare for [...]

    9. George is learning about Ramadan while he shares the holiday with his friend Kareem. George helps decorate and make some of the treats, he encourages and supports Kareen through his day of fasting, and he celebrates with his friends at a big nighttime dinner. Then, he does service at the mosque, and gets a gift to help celebrate the Eid festival. George’s first Ramadan is a success. This is a great book for learning about Ramadan. The sides are tabbed so that the child can select which traditi [...]

    10. Written by Hena Khan (of "Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns" fame), "It's Ramadan, Curious George" is a simple introduction to Ramadan and Eid for the young ones in your life. I ordered a copy of this for myself, and two copies for friends. I am going to request that my library order a copy, too. This book goes a long way in making Muslims feel included by using a well-known character like Curious George in conjunction with Ramadan. If you are looking for a book that has more detail about Ramadan [...]

    11. One word: finally! This is a lovely story for children about the Islamic holy month Ramadan, featuring the beloved character Curious George. The story chronicles the events of Ramadan through the friendship of George and his friend Kareem. Written in narrative poem, follow George and Kareem as they learn to fast, have patience, give charity, decorate, and celebrate Eid. Thank you, Hena Khan!

    12. In this cardboard book, Curious George spends time with his friend Kareem's family. Kareem even fasts for a day and George helps Kareem keep his mind off of food, even when Kareem's stomach is growling. There are tabs at the right edge of each page to help young children find the page they want to read. George does not get into his usual trouble in this book.

    13. The rhyming text energetically moves the reader through the story, and is a fun introduction to Ramadan for kids. It's also nice for Muslim kids to see themselves reflected in a popular children's book series (and the illustrations normalize e.g. women in hijab).

    14. There are few words that explain how happy I feel that one of my favorite childhood characters is starring in a book that talks about important parts of my faith. I absolutely can't wait to read this to the children in my family!

    15. A cute story to explain Ramadan to children. I love the many different people taking part in the pictures.
