In this rhyming picture book, a young girl observes the way six females in her family wear their hijabs in public, as well as the ways they express themselves in private without hijabs. Hena Khan’s lyrical text (and supporting back matter), combined with Aaliya Jaleel’as expressive illustrations, result in a great read-aloud which has potential to be both a mirror to Muslim children and a window to non-Muslim children who may unfamiliar with the custom of wearing the hijab. A great addition to your bookshelf!
