Hana’s Hundreds of Hijabs

Barefoot. Sept. 2022. 24p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781646866205.
K-Gr 4–Hana loves to collect hijabs. She gets new ones everywhere, from the stores to upcycling her mom’s old skirts. She also has an overflowing collection of accessories to style her hijabs—something she spends hours doing. Not only does this make her chronically late, but her hijabs and accessories are taking over the house. After visiting Aunty Huda’s hair salon and seeing how confident the customers feel afterward, Hana starts offering her styling services to a long line of clients, using her creativity and extra supplies to spread joy, not just through hijab, but all types of headwear. This delightful story of a child learning to declutter and share her talents features an ethnically diverse array of characters and a wide variety of head coverings from different styles of hijab to hats, headphones, and hair accessories. Brightly colored illustrations show the beauty and variety of Hana’s collection while reflecting her spark and energy and how she expresses herself through her hijab.
VERDICT A vibrant tale of spreading joy and beauty that’s sure to be a hit with young fashionistas.
