The White Nights of Ramadan

Illustrated by

During the middle of Ramadan, Noor is preparing for Girgian, a special celebration that takes places in countries of the Arabian Sea and Persian Gulf region. She and her brothers will dress in traditional clothes and collect candy in fancy bags that they have decorated — much like trick-or-treating. Young readers will enjoy learning about this celebration, as well as other important aspects of Ramadan. Lovely oil paintings bring Noor's preparations and this moonlit celebration to life.
