This vibrant, heartwarming, and joyful collection of stories features diverse characters who offer readers lessons in being generous, appreciative, and accepting. Once Upon an Eid includes an equally diverse group of contributors: Pakistani American Hanna Khan (Amina's Voice), Australian Palestinian Randa Abdel-Fattah (Does My Head Look Big in This?), N.H. Senzai (Shooting Kabul), who grew up in San Francisco and Saudi Arabia, Malaysian Hanna Alkaf, and Jordanian American illustrator Sara Alfageeh.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
