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.
