Under My Hijab written by Hena Khan and illustrated by Aaliya Jaleel

We are so happy to present this beautiful book as our Book Of The Month for May which celebrates the use of the hijab and presenting strong and independent muslim women so that children can identify themselves with these wonderful female role models.

"Grandma's hijab clasps under her chin. Auntie pins hers up with a whimsical brooch. Jenna puts a sun hat over hers when she hikes. Iman wears a sports hijab for tae kwon do. As a young girl observes the women in her life and how each covers her hair a different way, she dreams of the possibilities in her own future and how she might express her personality through her hijab."
