Ramadan books

Beginning with the first appearance of the crescent moon in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is a month of fasting, prayer, and reflection for Muslim people around the world.  This is a time of reconnection and dedication for the followers of Islam—and it can be a difficult time for those fasting, so make sure to be extra considerate of your Muslim friends!

In recognition of Ramadan, we're highlighting some wonderful children's books that share Muslim stories.  From titles about Ramadan, to magical adventures, to the everyday lives of Muslim children, these books are sure to delight young readers.

Kids' Books for Presidents Day!

American flag with blue skyPresidents Day?  Presidents' Day?  President's Day?  The holiday's name varies by state, but the federal holiday is officially called George Washington's Birthday—although the holiday doesn't always land on Washington's actual birthday, thanks to the Uniform Monday Holiday Act.

But even thought the official holiday is only named for George Washington, we're taking an expansive interpretation of the holiday, and sharing kids' books about all kinds of US presidents—and the government in general.
