A Muslim family watches for the Ramadan Moon. During Ramadan, Muslim families all over the world visit their mosques to listen to verses from the Koran. They will eat before dawn and will not eat again until after sunset.
Their hunger during the day reminds them of their good fortune and the needs of others. This is a time for generosity, goodwill and prayer.
When the second new moon is seen, Ramadan comes to an end, and it's followed by the joyful celebration of Eid ul Fitr.
The lyrical text ably captures the excitement and appeal of the special time of Ramadan. The text is delightfully complemented by the cheerful illustrations of a family at home, at prayer and celebrating together.
