Friday is Musa's favourite day of the week. His family attends Jummah prayer and get to have a special Jummah treat afterward so he is looking forward to having Halal Hot Dogs!


When This book is purely a book of Palestinian-American Muslim joy. Musa is such a lovable character in this book. He shares his family's Friday routine of attending Jummah prayer and having a family treat after the prayer. I love how Musa's innocence comes through so wonderfully and naturally. The scene of him patiently attending the khutbah but his belly grumbling and his being distracted by his hunger. So many kids can relate to this. The illustrations are colourful and vibrant. The details about the Palestinian cultural references such as dabke, the cultural attire and traditional dishes is beautiful. The back of the book provides terms of glossary, and gives insight of what Halal is and what it means. Definitely encourage you to get your hands on this book! It is a winning title of MBA2021
