Our newest collection, "Martin & Sylvia and the Welcoming Feast," is a story in three parts centered around the first meeting between Martin and Sylvia's family and the family of Daddy's new colleague, Rami Hadid.

When the Hadids all visit on a Saturday for a shared meal, brother and sister learn a little about a day in the life of a Muslim family.

In this story:

When Martin learns that the Hadid family will be coming over on Saturday, he is initially resistant. Martin is generally hesitant about meeting new people and would rather spend the day with people he knows. But when he learns that they are Muslim and that Rami has lots of stories about growing up in Syria, he is very curious.

"Parts Two and Three can be found for free on our blog - look for "The Welcoming Feast."
