It's the first day of Ramadan, and George is celebrating with his friend Kareem and his family. George helps Kareem with his first fast and joins in the evening celebration of tasting treats and enjoying a special meal. Then, George helps make gift baskets to donate to the needy, and watches for the crescent moon with the man in the yellow hat. Finally George joins in the Eid festivities to mark the end of his very first Ramadan. This playful tabbed board book, with a foil-stamped cover, makes a great holiday gift for all fans of Curious George—those who celebrate Ramadan, and those who are learning about it for the first time!

It's Ramadan, Curious George based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
One of my four-year-old's favorites. It was a great help when his classmate celebrated Ramadan-- he was able to bond with her over customs he'd read about in the book. A really lovely story with lots of great details to spark conversation in a totally age-appropriate way for preschoolers and kindergarteners.
