Picture Book Wednesday: Produest Blue

43853210. sx318

Faizah's sister picks out the color of her first hijab to wear to school. She picks blue like the ocean. Faizah's proud of her sister, but not everyone is kind. Faizah must battle through the hurt and confusion as people say mean things to her sister.

I really loved this sweet story about sisters sticking together, about hurtful words, and about kindness. I loved the message of pride and your identity. I loved the author's note explaining how she wanted other Muslim children to know they are not alone. The illustrations are beautiful. 

Library Recommendation: A must have book for your school or public library
