Courte biographie
Karen Katz has written and illustrated more than fifty picture books and novelty books including the bestselling Where Is Baby's Belly Button? After graduating from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, she attended the Yale Graduate School of Art and Architecture where she became interested in folk art, Indian miniatures, Shaker art, and Mexican art. Her book, Counting Kisses, was named one of the 100 Greatest Books for Kids by Scholastic Parent & Child and was a Children's Book-of-the-Month Club Main Selection. Karen, her husband Gary Richards, and their daughter, Lena, divide their time between New York City and Saugerties, New York.

This book tells the reader about the holiday of Ramadan in very easy words for children that have never heard about it to try and understand the basic elements of the holiday. I would definitely use this in my classroom to teach about ramadan, especially if there is someone in my classroom that celebrates it so that their culture and holidays feel represented in my classroom and so that the class understand why a classmate might be doing things differently than them.… (plus d'informations)
