What symbolizes your identity? What shows people your most important beliefs? In this vibrantly illustrated picture book, a little girl celebrates the day that her older sister wears hijab for the very first time. Written by the first Muslim American woman in hijab to compete for the U.S. in the Olympic Games and illustrated by a Canadian who grew up playing with his mother’s colourful scarves in Egypt, this thoughtful story is highly recommended for readers of all ages and of all beliefs.
