The Proudest Blue:

A Story Of Hijab And Family

A powerful, vibrantly illustrated story about the first day of school–and two sisters on one’s first day of hijab by Olympic medalist and social justice activist Ibtihaj Muhammad. With her new backpack and light-up shoes, Faizah knows the first day of school is going to be special. It’s the start of a brand new year and, best of all, it’s her older sister Asiya’s first day of hijab–a hijab of beautiful blue fabric. But not everyone sees hijab as beautiful, and in the face of hurtful, confusing words, Faizah finds new ways to be strong.

Reviewed by:

While Hijab is seen as a normal life style by these two girls, others in their school see it differently, and that comes as a surprise to the girls. To the kids at school, it is strange and they make negative comments about it. Faizah, however, is not swayed by them. With every negative comment, she finds something else that is remarkable about her sister’s blue hijab.
