Ramadan Muburak


Ramadan Mubarak to all who are celebrating this year!

To celebrate Ramadan, I'm happy to announced that I will be a special guest to read "Mommy's Khimar" during story time at the local bookshop, Little Shop of Stories in Decatur, Georgia this Sunday! Whether you are observing the holiday or are someone who wants to learn more about it, please stop by for an afternoon of learning and honoring this pillar of Islam. 

Wishing you and your family to be blessed with love, peace, and happiness during this month-long holiday, 

Happy Ramadan. 


Book Birthday!

Happy Book Birthday to Mommy's Khimar!


Yes, the day has finally come and this picture book is ready to sit on your child's bookshelf.

Written by debut author, Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow, Mommy's Khimar is a story about a little, Muslim girl who loves to wear her mother's khimars (another word for hijabs or headscarves.)  It also shares "a universal message of love, community [...] and it offers a beautiful representation of a too-often-overlooked cultural group. " - Kirkus Reviews.

I do hope you can get your hands on this book and love the story as much as I do.
