Product description

Just one more sleep before EID! Safa is so excited for Eid-al-Fitr. She loves drawing henna patterns on her hands, decorating her home and munching on biryani, kebabs and samosas. It is the perfect day. Then the best part comes: she gets to open her presents! She is gifted a shiny pink bicycle. The only thing is she absolutely doesn’t want to share with her cousin, Alissa. As her mum takes her on an adventure to gift delicious Eid treats to all their neighbours, Safa will realise how wonderful it is to make others happy…and will want to make it up to Alissa. After all, what makes Eid exciting is sharing special moments with the people we love.

Our April 2022 Ages 3-4 Book of the Month

Our pick this month for children aged 3-4 is The Most Exciting Eid, written by Zeba Talkhani with beautiful illustrations from Abeeha Tariq. With Eid-al-Fitr fast approaching, this picture book is a great way to introduce all children to the Islamic celebration whilst also exploring more general values such as sharing and helping others.

Safa loves all aspects of Eid, but especially enjoys opening all her presents! She does not want to share her brand new pink bike with her cousin. However, after Safa and her mum go on an exciting adventure delivering Eid treats to all their neighbours, Safa realises how wonderful it is to make others happy by sharing what you have with them. She learns what really makes Eid exciting – sharing it with loved ones!

This great book also includes a non-fiction spread with authentic and exciting details all about Eid traditions, food and greetings for especially curious minds to explore further.
