The Proudest Blue

Faizah’s sister’s new hijab is blue as the sea and sky. But when people are nasty about it, will the sisters know how to be strong? It’s Faizah’s first day of school – and it’s her big sister Asiya’s first day of wearing a hijab. It’s made of a beautiful blue fabric, like the ocean and sky with no line between them, saying hello with a loud wave. But not everyone sees the hijab as beautiful. In the face of hurtful, confusing words, will Faizah and Asiya dare to be proud and hold their heads up high?
