This picture book tells the fictional story of Moses Feldman and Mohammed Hassan. They live at opposite ends of Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.

One day when their mothers were shopping at the same grocery store, Moses, called Moe, met Mohammed, called Mo. The store owner thought the boys looked so much alike they might be twins, or at least cousins. They also behaved similarly (much to the consternation of their watchful mothers).

Weeks later, each family was preparing for the holidays - the Feldmans for Rosh Hashanah and the Hassans for Ramadan, and each mother took her son to the same park to give the antsy boys a chance to dispel some of their energy. (The author explains in a note that Rosh Hashanah and Ramadan occur at the same time roughly every thirty years.) Moe and Mo were happy to see each other, and immediately ran off to play together, with the mothers becoming frantic over their missing sons. When the mothers found them, they hugged one another, and all agreed to meet again.

The book concludes with the two families feasting together in the park. An explanation of both the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah and the Muslim holiday of Ramadan follows in an Afterword, as well as recipes for sweet treats common to each holiday.

The illustrator, Mehrdokht Amini, uses collage and a rich, vivid palette that shows Brooklyn as a colorful and lively place. Realistic touches reflect the celebration of and respect for both the differences and commonalities among cultures.

Evaluation: This lovely book might be seen as an expression of the Jewish saying, “From your lips to God’s ears.” One can only hope there are real stories like this about the fundamental sameness of all human beings to counter all the polarization and hate in the world. I was reminded of the movie "Notting Hill," when Julia Roberts, playing the Oscar-winning actress Anna Scott, tells “commoner” Hugh Grant, “I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” Moe and Mo are just two young kids, who like each other and want to play with each other. A great message for readers aged 3 and up. ( )

Top 100 Favorite because:

Immediately when I open A Moon for Moe and Mo, I am drawn in by the layered collage style art. I love the mixture of real pictures with the painting. The way the text and images portray the similarities and differences seems natural and beautiful. It isn't forced. It depicts and integrates the two cultures with ease and marks how, while different cultures and religions, they are to each other. The inclusion of Jewish and Arabic words and references to their holidays works very well with how to narrative flows.
Back matter includes: Double spread on Rosh Hashanah and recipes mentioned in the story, Double spread about Ramadan with inclusion of recipe, an Author's note, and an Illustrator's note. ( )

Two boys from the same block meet at the grocery store and become friends while preparing to celebrate two different cultural holidays. The illustrations are nice with an abstract look to them. I really like that the author has included a few notes on new moon marks for these cultures in the back of the book. Also included in the back of the book are a couple of recipes. This story is fiction, but would be a good opening book to share if you will be looking more in depth into cultures all around. ( )

Two boys named Moses and Mohammed meet by happenstance as their mothers are grocery shopping. The two become friends despite coming from different ethnic and religious backgrounds.

This is a lovely story about a friendship across differences and finding the similarities that bind us together. The illustrations are interesting with a collage-like look, but are not exactly to my taste. Backmatter describes with greater detail some of the holiday traditions touched upon in the story, along with recipes for holiday treats. ( )

This is a beautiful story of two boys who meets by coinsidence while being mistaken as brothers. Mosses and Mohammed interconnect two cultures through friendship that collides families as well. Mosses and his family who are Jewish are about to celebrate Rosh Hashanah a Jewish holiday and Mosses and his family is celebrating Ramadan--an. Both holidays occur once a year, and both boys decide to celebrate the holidays together with both families. The idea that two opposite cultures can come together and celebrate as one family promotes unity and encourages kids to do the same. ( )
