The Best Eid Ever by Asma Mobin-Uddin, illustrated by Laura Jacobsen [in Bloomsbury Review]

Best Eid EverWhen Aneesa, a young Muslim girl, wakes up on the first morning of Eid with just her grandmother, she greatly misses her parents, who are on a pilgrimage to Mecca. At the prayer hall, Aneesa meets two girls whose family escaped war in their homeland with virtually nothing. Aneesa learns the true meaning of Eid as she shares some of her bountiful gifts, indeed making it the best Eid of all.
