Another View: A Sweet Meeting on Mimouna Night
A Sweet Meeting on Mimouna Night is a story of friendship between Jewish and Muslim characters, so I thought it would be interesting to draw your attention to this review written from a Muslim point of view. It's by Sadaf Siddique at Lantern Reads, a website that focuses on South Asian and Muslim children's literature. Sadaf and I have worked together several times: first I interviewed her on The Book of Life podcast; then we co-wrote an article for The Horn Book; more recently we presented a workshop together for EMIERT on fighting antisemitism and Islamophobia through children's literature. To hear her perspective on A Sweet Meeting on Mimouna Night, please READ HER REVIEW HERE.
