Testimonial:

“Unlike Muslim countries, where everything is decorated for the holy month of Ramadan and everyone fosters a sense of connection to the importance of the month, parents who live in non-Muslim countries have the added challenge that there is little recognition of this holy time outside of our homes and mosques. Reem skillfully portrays not only how special the holy month of Ramadan is but also how a Muslim child can feel special about herself at times when others do not practice the same beliefs. A great way to give youth confidence!
Not only did our students enjoy the story time session but also the staff! Clear, engaging and full of emotion. Students were so interested to find out how Lailah will face her fears and the illustrations enhanced the whole experience! Our students couldn’t resist but ask “what’s going to happen…” as they sat glued to the pages of the book.
Reem did a superb job in the way themes like confidence, perseverance, respect, and of course Islam are portrayed in the book for all different audiences! Definitely a skillful trait of a dedicated author!” –
