Under My Hijab by Hena Khan

Under My Hijab by Hena Khan illustrates the cultural and religious importance of the hijab through the eyes of a young girl. She watches how all the contemporary Muslim women in her family wear their hijab in different ways.

Grandma wears it under her chin fastened with a pin and her aunty pins hers with a beautiful brooch. When Jenna goes hiking, she wears her hijab under a sunhat and Zara likes her to match her outfit. The young girl dreams about her own future and all the different ways she can express herself through her hijab. This picture book is a wonderful way to promote tolerance, family, diversity and identity.
