Under my Hijab by Hena Khan is truly a celebratory text for all Muslim women and girls who wear hijabs and the many ways in which they do. It is also a wonderful introduction to hijabs for all readers.
Mommy’s Khimar by Jamila Thompkins-Bigelow showcases the beauty of a young child’s imagination when it comes to her mother’s khimar and how she spends the day wrapped in it. This book is a joyful celebration of love and family.
It is more important now than every that we read inclusive books. With the rise of islamophobia in our country it is important that we share Muslim stories that are filled with joy. Books are also essential tools in teaching empathy and kindness.
