Nabeel's new Eid pants are four fingers too long. However, everyone is too busy with their own prepping to shorten his pants on time for Eid. He takes on the task himself and he is in for a surprise.
This is a comical tale about a Muslim family's Eid . The love and appreciation that they have for one another is told through a humorous story. Honestly, with so many books about Eid that just simply explain Eid and follow Muslim kids in how they celebrate Eid, books like this remain so memorable. There are traditional clothing and dishes that are mentioned in the story. I love that Nabeel takes on the task on trimming and sewing his pants himself. His mother, wife and daughter also want to surprise him with kindness to surprise him. the story is simply narrated and easy to follow even for younger kids. This is not meant to teach and inform the reader of what Eid is, rather a silly story of family Eid gifts that may or may not have gone according to plan. Such an enjoyable book for little ones and their grown up readers. I think this would make a wonderful read aloud!!
