Hamza Learns About Eid ul Adha (Hamza The Muslim Boy Series) Ages 4 to 8

Hamza Learns About Eid ul Adha (Hamza The Muslim Boy Series) Ages 4 to 8star rating 2MariaJune 9, 2012I found this book to focus too much on Hamza's fears of his father sacrificing him - I don't know how I would explain that to my sons. When I sit down to read a book on a Saturday morning with my two small kids, I don't want to put images of violence in their heads, or give them nightmares, that my husband will try to kill them. I'm not sure kids will "get" the larger message - and it's a terrific message - of this book. The book is great, but for an older child - my kids are 3 and 5. I also didn't like the emphasis placed on slaughtering animals. I also found that I wasn't sure how to explain this to my children. The book is great, but not my cup of tea. I would not recommend this book for small children. Perhaps I'm sheltering my kids too much, but I thought the book would be more lighthearted.
