A lyrical book about the feelings a little Muslim girl has for her head scarf, her Hijab. Author Na’ima Bint Robert skillfully weaves a beautiful tale that elicits pride in Islamic attire and portrays the beauty and diversity of Muslim women. With a swirl of the hijab a little girl is at once a brave warrior queen, an adventurous nomad in the desert, a beautiful bride, inside a Bedouin tent. Sometimes you read a book that makes a very strong point about a major Islamic issue but the author uses such finesse that you hardly feel it. The author sweeps away all controversy over hijab simply by the use of appealing and positive imagery. Beautifully illustrated, this soft back book is available in English with 19 languages. "A very special book and extremely timely with this beautiful illustrations combined with simple but engaging text." We are very pleased to recommend The Swirling Hijab for all ages! Noorart Staff.
