30 Days of Ramadan: Understanding Our Friends #30DaysRamadan
Multicultural Children’s Book Day has joined forces with powerhouse multicultural children’s book publisher Wisdom Tales Press to create a much-needed initiative
Given the recent backlash and misconceptions in the media regarding Muslims and Islam, Multicultural Children’s Book Day will be focusing on the Muslim holiday of Ramadan June 5th-July 5th 2016 as a way to bring awareness and understanding about our Muslim neighbors via the pages of children’s literature.
30 Days of Ramadan: Understanding Our Friends is a celebration of children’s literature which includes characters and storylines that celebrate being Muslim. Books profiled will include topics like Muslims and the religion of Islam, books which specifically look at the Ramadan holiday and/or the authors that are Muslim.
