ONCE UPON AN EID Stories of Hope and Joy by 15 Muslim Voices

by | Read by Siiri Scott, Neil Shah

Children Ages 8+ • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrators Siiri Scott and Neil Shah give voice to the highs and lows of middle-grade feelings in these sweet and joyful stories about Eid celebrations around the world. As the protagonists deal with everything from divorced parents to cultural differences to celebrating as part of a community of refugees, Shah and Scott enhance the listening experience with their authentic pronunciations. G. Willow Wilson's "Seraj Captures the Moon" is a short graphic novel that listeners can access via a pdf so they can follow along with Scott's lively narration (including donkey brays). The only audio misstep is that in the final story, "Eid and Pink Bubble Gum," by Australian author Randa Abdel-Fattah, a family on an annual road trip to visit grandparents outside of Sydney inexplicably have American accents.
