7 of the Best Bookish Gifts for Eid ul Adha

Eid ul Adha 2019 is coming up on August 10, God willing. It’s not as popular as Eid ul Fitr, but you can still buy your kids bookish Eid gifts! I found some spectacular bookish gifts to make their Eid more special. (Remember, Eid ul Adha, aka Bakra Eid, is three days long, so you can buy three gifts!)

Peg and Cat Eid ul AdhaPeg & Cat: The Eid ul Adha Adventure by Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson

This is my top pick since it actually has “Eid ul Adha” in the title! Commonly known as the “second Eid,” this holiday gets less attention so this is a special book. I enjoyed the illustrations of Cat celebrating Eid and eating the treats like honey cakes.

Eid Paint Your Own Mug for Kids

Now you can have your own Color Me Mine experience in your own home! Mother-daughter line TwoCraftistas provides interactive artsy gifts for kids. I bought my niece the color your own shirt, and this mug looks equally special.

Alhamdulillah for Eid Coloring Book

Kids can color on Eid after the morning prayer, and in between family parties. It’s nice to have a coloring book dedicated to the holiday. (Technically for teens.)

Eid Breakfast bookEid Breakfast at Abuela’s by Mariam Saad

I love the diversity and inclusiveness in this upcoming children’s book. It celebrates interfaith and multicultural relationships. The book is available for preorder and will arrive at the end of August, but it’s worth the wait.

The Grand Mosque of Paris bookThe Grand Mosque of Paris by Karen Gray Ruelle and Deborah Durland Desaix

This heartwarming book with gorgeous illustrations provides an epic lesson for kids. Although the story is about the past, it teaches kids that Muslims and Jews should continue to help one another.

What Am I? book 2What Am I? The What Race Are We? Series Book 2 by Papatia Feauxzar and Asiila Imani

In the long-awaited sequel to What Am I?, multiracial Toa explains his diverse family background. I love the comparison of his mixed background to a sliced pizza with toppings.
