A Picture Book to Love: The Proudest Blue

The Proudest Blue: A Story of Hijab and Family by Ibtihaj Muhammad with S.K. Ali and Illustrated by Hatem Aly

Two sisters go to school on the first day. The younger sister looks up to her older sister as she wears a hijab, the color of the ocean, to school for the first time.

The sibling relationship between the two girls in this book is the sweetest. The younger yearns to be like her older sister and checks up on her when she's worried about teasing from classmates. Each sister is also a role model of strength and confidence as they don't let the words of others drag them down.

The lessons in the book about understanding who one is and remembering not to carry around the hurtful words of others are important for our students to learn, as well.

A beautiful book that will hopefully inspire readers to be proud of who they are.
