Rockin' Reads: Mommy's Khimar

Mommy’s Khimar 
Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow
Illustrations by Ebony Glenn
Salaam Reads, 2018. Picture Book.

A little girl is enchanted with the many khimars that her mother wears—but especially the yellow ones. The girl talks about how she feels when she borrows a khimar (also called a hijab by some in the book). This sweet story is about the relationship with a mother and daughter (and other women who wear khimars) and how the khimar excites the imagination of the girl. This rockin’ read shows youngsters a small peek into the life of fun family (that may be a little different than the reader’s family). It is a good book for showing love of families and some cultural differences.
