Title: The Rainbow Hijab
Author: Amran Abdi
Illustrator: Nicola Davies
Age: 3-5 year olds
Ameera is a young girl who just loves her multicoloured hijab. But one day, she couldn't find it anywhere. Guess where it is! Someone else loves her hijab too ;)
The Rainbow Hijab is a lovely book about a girl and her hijab. It's simply told. The colours are bright and the pictures engaging. The words are easily read and don't make you tongue-tied as you read it out loud. It has read-out-loud qualities.
I'm sure my prekinders would love this (currently its the summer holidays). It's a great book to read to young girls to encourage them to wear hijab.
Do you have a daughter? Give her a special hijab that she'll want to wear everywhere, much like Ameera does and encourage her by reading this book.
You can get a copy here or ask at your local bookstore to stock it.
In the meantime, have your daughter colour this hijab picture in. Download My Hijab here.
