Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

What happens when you take from where there's more and give to where there's less? While visiting friends Yasmina and Amir, Peg and Cat learn some surprising things about a holiday tradition. <br> <br> It's Eid al-Adha, a very special holiday for Yasmina and Amir, who invite their friends Peg and Cat to check it out. After they all rock out with some singing, it's time to head to the celebration, where there's so much food waiting! Amir explains that an important part of celebrating Eid al-Adha is dividing the meat into three equal parts, one third to be shared with someone who has less. But with all three bowls of meatballs holding different amounts, they've got a BIG PROBLEM! Thanks to a balancing scale, a trip to a soup kitchen, and an unexpected visit to a housebound neighbor, Peg and Cat learn all about the concept of taking from where there's more and giving to where there's less. Even Cat discovers how awesome giving can be. Eid Mubarak!

Horn Book Review

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. (c) Copyright 2019.
