I adored this sweet, colorful picture book that looks at a young Muslim girl and her family. When she puts on her mommy's khimar (in her favorite color, yellow), she can be a queen, a superhero, and part of a community full of love.

A young Muslim girl spends her day wrapped in her mother's beautiful yellow khimar. She imagines that she is a superhero in cape. She is "Sunshine". She is wearing a crown with a train. She is a shooting star. I loved that this book taught me what a khimar and hijab are. I also love that the young girl shares that while all of the women in her family do not wear khimars, "We are family and we love each other just the same."

This adorably illustrated picture book stars a young Muslim girl as she describes her mother's khimar and its many imaginative uses. The girl's grandmother is a Christian, not a Muslim, but as the girl says, "We are a family and we love each other just the same." In her Arabic class, both Muslim and non-Muslim children are pictured. It's a sweet, comforting celebration of family and culture.
