Mid-Ramadan is a special time for families in the Arabian (Persian) Gulf. These middle days are known as the three whites, because they include the day of the full moon, the day before, and the day after. It's a time when children dress in traditional clothing and go from house to house collecting treats from their neighbors. When Noor sees the full moon rising, signaling the coming of Girgian, she and her brothers prepare for the fun. Together, they decorate the bags they'll carry to collect the candies. But along with the fun, Noor remembers the true meaning of Ramadan: spending time with family and sharing with those less fortunate. Maha Addasi was born and grew up in Kuwait. After a career as a news correspondent and producer for Jordan and Dubai television, she moved to the U.S. and began writing books for children. She lives in Fairfax, Virginia. mahaaddasi.com
