The Hijab Boutique
Farah enjoyed her private girls school until the day an assignment to bring in something representing her mother to talk about for ‘International Woman’s Day. Compared to her friend’s glamorous actress and tap-dancing mothers, what can her modest, humble mother have that is worth sharing with her classmates? To her surprise, her mother was quite a business woman! “The Hijab Boutique” is a wonderful book that will appeal to young readers age 10 and up. Black and white illustrations add to the message’s impact. One of the striking attributes of “The Hijab Boutique” is its sensitive treatment of the topic of respecting cultural differences, and rethinking automatic responses.” – Midwest Book Review -August 2011 issue.
