Book Review

it’s my favourite part of Eid to be with my family

The shiny cover is very nice and it’s red so I always find it quickly on my shelf.

This is a fun story about Eid. Eid is my favourite celebration. I like how Hana is with all her family on Eid day. It’s my favourite part of Eid to be with my family.

There are some funny parts in this story like when Hana looks for presents in strange places! That’s why it’s a really good book.

I liked looking at the Eid decorations in the pictures. I have some ideas what to put in my house. Eid is going to be soon in a few days for me. It was nice to read this book at Eid time.
