Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2018 Fall)
The PBS Kids stars learn from their Muslim friends about Eid al-Adha, a holiday about "giving to those with less"; this prompts a discussion about the concepts "less than" and "more than." Like all the books based on Peg + Cat television scripts, this one is educational but flagrantly teach-y and frantic. The art resembles screenshots of the animated show.
