About The Author
Ndaa Hassan is a wife, mother, artist, social entrepreneur and creative design enthusiast with a passion for storytelling, traveling and learning about other cultures. She takes particular interest working on projects that provide value and service to others. Her portfolio spans many community-centered projects and a handful of story times filled with lots of excitement, laughs and giggles. Ramadan Around The World is her first venture into children’s literature. It is a story inspired by her children and their Ramadan celebrations.
Azra Momin paints, illustrates books, writes for magazines, makes textile art and jewelry, and not necessarily in that order. She enjoys playing made-up games and going geocaching with her favorite comrades - her husband and daughter. A stack of children's books and mystery novels is always by her side and she dreams about living in an earth ship.
I bought this book and lent it to my son’s teacher to read in class. The kids loved it and was able to learn about Ramadan in a fun way. The illustrations really is beautiful.
