    It is meant to breed generosity and goodwill, by teaching humility and sacrifice.

    I guess I could have added this to another post. I think this will be a great book and will probably buy it if I don’t win. It is extremely important to me that I can teach my child about all different religions so that he is understanding and open minded of others choices. My husband is atheist and I’m pagan but we were both raised christian, it was not an easy experience for either of us having different beliefs than our parents, I want that to be easier for my son.

    Muslims fast during the eleventh month. They fast during the day to become closer to god and pray more.
