Can You Find My Eid Presents?

What the book club told us about the book:

The book is a picture book about a girl called Hana who is celebrating Eid. She loves the food, decorations and most of all the presents to share. She cannot wait to celebrate with her family, but there is a problem, the presents have disappeared! She searches high and low as Eid will not be the same without a special gift to give.

About the book club:

There are 8 children from KS1 (Year 1 and Year 2) in our book club. We meet once a week during lunch. We talk about books and look at ones we may want to read. We discuss key features and then chat about what we think about the book.

What our educators thought

“This was the perfect book for our school. The children loved having a story with so much familiarity to their own lives. We try to read the children stories about all celebrations but it was lovely to see them able to share in the joy of this book and share their own experiences of Eid. I think for children who do not celebrate Eid they would just need this celebration explaining and compared to something they do celebrate so they can see the similarities and differences. It is a lovely story to share the excitement of children around special celebrations. The children loved sharing their own little Eid stories such as, “My mummy lets me help her cook the chapati” and “We get new clothes”.
