Exploring Ramadan through the eyes of a Muslim child, this graceful and authentic story illuminates the sense of belonging to both the community and the universe that this month of fasting, prayer and reflection brings, as well as the sense of accomplishment that springs from sacrifice.

This month is different from the others.
It starts with the sighting of a new crescent moon.
'Slow down, be kind to yourself and think good thoughts.'
This month, we learn to do big things by changing one little thing at a time…

It's the first time for Deenie, the youngest member of a Muslim family, to fast during Ramadan. She comes across some challenges, but by the end of the month, she learns that there is a lot more to Ramadan than giving up food and water.

A warm and joyful story offering children the chance to see themselves or their friends in the celebration of the spiritual practice of Ramadan.
