Sadiq and his friends want to host an "Iftar," the meal that Muslims eat to break the fast during Ramadan, to earn money for a new school in Somalia. Excited about this project, Sadiq and his friends start planning their event, but for some reason, Zaza is not participating and Sadiq is getting frustrated. What do you do when you start working with one plan in mind, but your friend decides that they want to do something else? Sadiq must learn that it is ok for your friends to want different things, and that plans can sometimes be adapted to make everyone happy. 

This short little book is great for beginner readers who are ready for more words on a page, without being overwhelmed. It is a great way to learn about other cultures and traditions with a loveable character who is also learning.
