Amal’s Ramadan

2016

by Amy Maranville and Joshua Stevens

Amal is back! Older than he was in his first book, (Amal's Eid), our friend is ready to try his first Ramadan fast. That means no eating or drinking while the sun is in the sky. He's very excited to fast like his parents and grandparents...but halfway through the day, he starts to feel dizzy. Will Amal make it to sunset without eating or drinking? And if he needs to drink or eat, will he be able to try again tomorrow? Join Amal as he learns about tradition and the love and support of family, even when things go differently than he planned.
