Under My Hijab A little girl looks around her and sees the different ways in which the women in her life wear their hijabs. Some individuals choose head scarves which are high fashion or funky and cool, others prefer something more practical for playing sport or working as a doctor. Whatever the function or style of the hijab, the women who wear them are shown to be strong and confident and we see them wearing their hair loose when they are at home with family. The charming full colour illustrations are in an attractive animation style. There is an informative end piece by the author (who chooses not to wear a hijab), which emphasises the personal nature of this particular expression of Islamic faith and some of the reasons why girls and women choose to wear one.
