A children's "learn your colors" book where a Muslim girl chooses what color hijab she'll wear today!

Hijab is the crown I wear every day.

It is worn many ways,

and it comes in every color.

What color hijab should I choose today?

Yellow, like my doctor's hijab?

Brown, like my teacher's hijab?

Pink, like my mother's hijab?

Help me decide!


Hudda Ibrahim is an author, community advocate, and educator. Her closet is full of hijabs in different styles, patterns, and of course, colors! Her first book, From Somalia to Snow, explores how central Minnesota became home to Somalis. Hudda hopes this book brings joy to the girls who wear hijabs and brings light to all of the people they meet.
