Summary and Review:
This newly released book is filled with stories, poems, Islamic lessons and a large variety of activities. Binyamin and his pet crab Chester take the reader through ten different stories and poems about the 1st ten days of Dhul Hijjah, Hajj and Eid Eid ul-Adha. Each story shares unique lessons and messages. (Ie: family, generosity, dhikr, dua, good deeds, rituals of Hajj, Umrah etc.). Each story has different set of characters, from different places and backgrounds. The 10 poems are a follow-up of the story in rhyming couplets. With this many of them, I was pleasantly surprised at the uniform flow and the smooth consistent rhyme. The kid-friendly language makes this book easy to comprehend by the little ones.
In addition, there are at least two activities per story, plus more in the end. Some of them include drawing practice, cutouts, cross words, questions, maze and more. This book is the perfect read to be completed throughout the 1st 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah and build the hype of Eid al-Adha. There is a couple of ayahs referenced as well as duas. Aside with Islamic lessons there's additional facts sprinkled in into the book. (Ie: facts about deserts, blue Iguanas, smash burger recipe, DIY rainbow instructions).
With over 100 pages of content in this book, it is certain to keep your kids busy learning and excited about this special celebration.
