Noor’s facial expressions, from excitement to dismay, are brilliantly funny and work well alongside the text. The illustrations throughout this story are so colourful and vibrant and bring Noor and her family to life through the pages. This 32 page book is incredibly adorable and silly, and yet so vague in the answer that is the whole premise of the book, that it really has me wondering why we are so afraid (in children's books and possibly in our daily lives) to say that we wear hijab because Allah swt commands it? Each time the rationale gets more outrageous: hide the eyes on the back of your head, prevent you from getting nits, etc.

The book articulates that we are Muslim and that hijab defines us, which I love, it just seems that while the rest of the book is incredibly direct and funny, the answer is fuzzy and lyrical. The book is beautifully illustrated, the size is great to be shared, the text funny, the voice playful,the joy contagious but the answer for me, just missed the mark, not by a lot, but by enough that I think an adult would need to supplement the overall takeaway message.

For those who are Muslim, it shows authentic representation of hijabis and for those who are not, it answers the types of questions that naturally curious children will have such as whether hair coverings are worn to hide big ears or secret snack stashes to feast upon at a later time. Nabila Adani lives in Jakarta Indonesia and enjoys illustrating different cultures around the world. When Noor finally gets to her mom it is she who answers with poetic lyricism, "We are Muslim women, my Noor, Unapologetic and true.

Telling the story of young Noor, who is desperate to find out why the female members of her family wear hijabs, this is a read which will delight young readers. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.It seems to be a common approach lately, and I wish that more picture books about hijab would clearly articulate that the commandment to cover is in the Quran. Imagine Me Stories is an award winning monthly subscription box that aims to inspire all children by providing quality black children's literature and empowering black history activities. Full of curiousity, Noor sets out to find her answer, but her family are all busy and have no time to answer this important question.
