In the hands of this imaginative little girl, her mum’s hijaab becomes a billowing sail, an impenetrable fort, a nomad’s pack and a cloak fit for a warrior queen. But what is it really used for? Charmingly illustrated, this is an endearing story about the way a young Muslim girl feels about the hijaab, or headscarf, that her mother wears. Available in dual language, ‘The Swirling Hijaab’ is a useful resource for exploring the Muslim faith and for discussing PSHE and Citizenship topics including multiculturalism and diversity.
