Book Review by Alina Hasan
"A heart warming and beautiful story that deals with the struggles of loneliness and the power of an unlikely friend.
I love these stories for many reasons, but my children identify with these characters on another level. The added bonus of seeing these beloved characters engage in prayer, look and speak like them- is a blessing without measure.
My daughter was able to express her pains of loneliness through the experience of Saleem.
They all lit up and remembered the beautiful time of Ramadan that previously passed and felt sad saleem couldn't truly enjoy himself as they had.
Amazing and adorable story of finding friends.
Buy this, it will be a fast family favorite "
Book Review by Anees
"Enjoyed the story and illustrations so much - it's such a warm, sweet story and I think the author's feelings really come through. And the setting of Ramadan really brings home the overall message as well. Super proud to see this and the other books being published for the young generation of Muslims, that those of us who are older didn't have growing up.
I congratulate the author and the company for publishing this book. We need more like this for the current and future generations, so our stories are heard, especially in times like these."
Book Review by Hibz
"My kids really enjoyed this book and were really able to relate to being in a new place and the loneliness it brings, but also to the power of duaa and the powerful effects it has, they're eyes grew so worried when he had to give Rami back, but lit up when they saw the prayers answered and unique friendship reunited"
