I liked the adventure this little girl takes us on, giving us a perspective on the Hajj through a child's eyes. She has a wonder, an awe, and a simplicity in the storytelling. Yet, despite the simplicity, she's also including the significance of the places and requirements of the Hajj accurately.

Adults and children alike can learn about the Hajj from this book. All the while, they embark on an exploration and an experience many have heard of from those who've gone for Hajj through a delightful little girl's view of what for many is a much yearned and once-in-a-lifetime journey.
