What Color is My Hijab? is a children’s picture book inspired by a question the author’s elementary-school aged niece asked her. The little girl wanted to know why there weren’t girls who look like her well represented in children’s literature. Now there are. This book features Muslim women who work in a number of professions: doctor, teacher, artist, politician, etc., all wearing their colorful hijabs.
