Lee & Low Books, Inc., 2019
Written in sprightly rhyme and with bright, inviting images this story illustrates the many ways the women in one family express individual style in their hijabs. Most importantly it shows how familiar and normal these women and their lives are underneath their hijabs. This positive gallery of faces, hair styles and occupations, demystify and normalize a symbol often mistaken as alien and frightening.
