Kindergarten-Grade 3–This introduction acquaints readers with the basic terminology, beliefs, and practices of this holiday that commemorates Ibrahim's obedience to Allah and the end of Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca). The captioned color photographs show Muslims from Egypt, India, the Middle East, Malaysia, the U.K., and the U.S., but exclude Europeans. The book contains some errors, e.g., it states that God appeared to Ibrahim in a dream, but according to Islam God does not appear to anyone. Ibrahim is said to take Ismail to the city of Mina, but there was no city at that time, just desert. The book also states that Id-ul-Adha is a time when Muslims ask God to make them kinder and stronger, whereas the celebration is actually about obedience to God. The phrase that translates to peace be upon him appears in Arabic script after each mention of Ibrahim, but no translation is provided. Apart from the errors and omissions, this is an informative book on a seldom-covered holiday.
