From the Author:
'Why isn’t there a fun and colorful book to show me ideas on how to get ready to wear hijab and how to wear it?'
This was the question that my daughter Aisha asked me back in Ramadan 2013, when she was only ten years old. Looking through all of her 'how-to' books on her shelf written for girls to discover their favorite clothing styles, hair styles, and hobbies, it became obvious that a book like this was essential for her developing Muslim identity.
I wanted to create a book for her, and all the other girls like her, that was colorful, fun, and vibrant; a book that reflected who she was inside and outside in her every day life. A book that made her feel excited to think about this important milestone for a young Muslim girl, and most importantly a book that gave her confidence to choose to cover when the time came.
Right then and there, I opened up a word document and told her 'Why don’t we write one together?' Excited, she began to list all of the things she’d like to see in a basic 'how-to' book.
