Publisher's Summary

A powerful, vibrant story about the first day of school - and two sisters on one's first day of hijab - by Olympic medalist and social justice activist Ibtihaj Muhammad.

With her new backpack and light-up shoes, Faizah knows the first day of school is going to be special. It's the start of a brand new year and, best of all, it's her older sister Asiya's first day of hijab - a hijab of beautiful blue fabric, like the ocean waving to the sky. But not everyone sees hijab as beautiful, and in the face of hurtful, confusing words, Faizah will find new ways to be strong. 

Olympic medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad and Morris Award finalist S.K. Ali bring listeners an uplifting, universal story of new experiences, the unbreakable bond between siblings, and of being proud of who you are.

Beautifully told story.

Ibtihaj’s book is a beautiful testimonial to string parents and a strong sister bond. The story is lovely, the reading of it is not great however, but I went ahead and bought this beautifully illustrated gem.
