This picture book for young readers shows how a young girl named Noor who lives with her family in Kuwait prepares for the Muslim festival known as Girgian along with her family Mid Ramadan is a special time for families in the Arabian Persian Gulf These middle days are known as the three whites b A young Kuwaiti girl and her two little brothers eagerly await the coming of Girgian a holiday celebrated in the Persian Gulf states during the middle of the month of Ramadan at the time of the full moon anticipating the joy of dressing up in colorful costumes and collecting candy from all the neighbors Ramadan and Girgian of course can be fun Noor tells her grandmother and is gently reminded that the month of fasting while indeed fun is much than thatI really enjoyed The White Nights of Ramadan and the glimpse it offered into a cultural practice completely unknown to me I had never heard of the holiday of Girgian a holiday within a holiday really but was struck by its similarity in some senses to Halloween That alone would recommend it to me The accompanying illustrations by Ned Gannon done in oil paint were lovely making excellent use of both color and light With an engaging tale sure to strike a chord with young readers everywhere what child doesn t love candy and beautiful illustrations that capture the magic of the white nights this is definitely a title I would with caveat see below recommend to those looking for good titles about RamadanI was than a little dismayed to see that the Persian Gulf was referred to as the Arabian Gulf with Persian in parentheses both in the front dust jacket description and in the author s note at the end For those not in the know there has been a dispute concerning the name of this body of water for the last few decades fueled by Arab nationalism See section four of the relevant Wikipedia article for a long list of historians many of them Arab who are probably rolling in their graves at this ahistorical nonsense Although a minor detail when it comes to appreciating this otherwise excellent book parents and educators should be aware of it and ready to correct any misperception it may create in young readers
