Nanni’s Hijab ~ Children’s Book Review

I started reading more Children's books. For it is a short and pleasant read. And, I'm also having happy time with the little kids who visit my home. Recently, I got a chance to read another lovely Children’s book to my young niece. And she loved this little Nanni.

Hijab makes our lives beautiful than anyone can imagine. I always love to see little girls wearing cute scarves on their head. At schools, children get to meet many kids from different community and culture and befriend them. Nanni’s Hijab written by Khadijah Abdul-Haqq, is a cute little story with beautiful illustrations. It enthralls the little ones while teaching them some basic manners. Illustrations are vivid and helps with the flow of narration. The book showcases the beauty of hijab while giving some idea to handle the difficult situation of our life, well and wise.

Nanni's Hijab is the story of Nanni, a little girl who loves wearing her hijab. She wears a different hijab every day. Her classmates enjoy seeing all the colors and designs of Nanni's hijabs, except Leslie. Leslie doesn't like Nanni or her hijabs. She tries to bully Nanni and humiliates her in the school yard in front of all her classmates, by snatching her hijab off her head. Nanni gets very upset with Leslie's bullying. In her heart, she wants to fight but she knows there has to be a better way. Instead of fighting, she goes home to think about the best way to handle Leslie's bullying.

Did Nanni find a way? Did Leslie learn her mistake? Read the book to know more.

The book will be available on online stores. Keep an eye out for it.

Nanni's Hijab is a short and sweet story. Perfect for kids' storytelling sessions. After all, it is about making friends.


  1. I love the graphics, amazing made and I think this is attracting kids to see. Easy written and good to read, thank you

  2. I love story books with colorful illustrations. I am interwsted to know what will Nanni do to Leslie next because of her bullying. The book also caters on social problem while it is also getting the interest of the reader. I salute the author for creating such a nice book.

  3. Aw.. Such a lovely thing to go back in age 😊 And this is such a nice story. I'll read this one myself too; it talks so much in details to learn about.

  4. That is such an interesting theme. You have left it the story at a point which kindles our interest too. I am sure Nanni will handle the situation intelligently. And in the end they will be good friends.

  5. As a kid I always loved the books with cool illustrations such as these. I really wonder how this story ended. It is quite an interesting theme that it deals with. I hate bullies of any kind, just for the record.

  6. I agree with you that the illustrations are nice. I just finished another children's story. I'm currently looking for a potential publisher and illustrator for it. I'm excited to go on school tour for my upcoming children's story! :)

  7. These illustrations are beautiful.I am sure my kid would love to read this book as he is a book lover.Reading is essential to develop kids for future.Such book reviews are always helpful for deciding on books,specially when we buy online.

  8. As a kid, I loved illustrated books. Well I'm (still kid at heart), I think, the book is amazing! And I bet with its theme, kids would learn so much. This might also be a good gift idea.

  9. Though I’m already a grown up, I still enjoy reading illustrated books. I even kept some from my childhood. Thay are always a nice read.

  10. I wonder what Nanni did to teach Leslie a lesson. It seems the latter had a good lesson learned.

    Though im an a certified grown up I still enjoy reading short stories, especially those with illustrations. We've gor plenty at home because when the three boys were still little, I let them read one story before bed time. Most of the time, too, I read to them.
