The Best Eid Ever

Here is a positive article in a mainstream newspaper discussing Dr. Asma Mobin-Uddin's new book, The Best Eid Ever:

Muslim author's book educates about faith

A quote from the article:
A pediatrician, Mobin-Uddin currently is not practicing as she spends time raising her three children ages 9, 7 and 4. She said she wrote the book to fill a void in children’s literature.

“Islam is the second most common religion in the world after Christianity, yet there were no fiction books about Eid when I started writing,” she said. “I wanted to write holiday stories where parents could read it to their children and in schools people could learn about (the Muslim culture).”
