Martin and Sylvia and the Generous Month
Martin and Sylvia’s family invites their new friends, the Hadid family, to a Strawberry Festival. They learn that though the Hadids are excited to join them, they needed to take special precautions because the holy Muslim festival of Ramadan has begun. Brother and sister are not familiar with Ramadan but learn that it involves fasting — or not eating food or drinking water during the day. This sounds very difficult to them. But when Rami and Kamila Hadid explain why they fast, Martin and Sylvia begin to understand why some call Ramadan “The Generous Month.”
