Nanni’s Hijab’s Press Release


“Nanni’s Hijab is well written, easy to read and a perfect teaching tool for both Muslim and non-Muslim kids. This beautiful story put a smile on my face, Alhamdulilah. The artist did an excellent job depicting the happiness and joy Nanni feels when she rocks her pretty hijabs. The colors are bold, vibrant and they set the mood for each stage of the narrative. I like that the story is realistic and gives real life scenarios and reaction, rather than a fairy tale point of view. I think it’s great that sister Khadijah AbdulHaqq Author tackled this subject. Inshallah, it will be a great resource for teachers and parents to read to the youth.”— Jamila Alqarnain, Noon Publications

Nanni’s Hijab was beautifully written. I loved the story so much. I am thankful that she (Author Khadijah AbdulHaqq) chose to read to our class. I can’t wait to see more (books) from her.”— Sister Mary Brown, Lead Facilitator for the Mothers Day Out program at Masjid As-salaam

Nanni’s Hijab was a wonderful book filled with lessons suitable for our young children to easily learn. It showed how Nanni was proud to be who she was even when others were putting her down. She showed that there’s more than one way to handle a bad or hurtful situation. My kids, even my teen, loved the book! I highly recommend this as a book that goes in every child’s personal library.”— Sister Gail Fripp, Motivational Speaker

“Nanni’s Hijab… is one of the most beautiful Islamic books I have come across… First, the illustrations will enchant children with full watercolor drawings that embrace the whole page. The expressions on the faces of the characters are vivid and get right through your heart. The soft pastel colors seize the innocence of youth. And the range of characters hints at a new generation of children books that take into consideration the diversity of the world. That’s very exciting. The story is well-written with lyrical prose.” — Sussu Leclerc, Author of Creating Unique Storyworlds

“The best thing about Nanni’s Hijab is that it teaches children how to deal with conflicts by problem solving. There are seven steps to problem solving: 1. Have a calm and clear mind. 2. Brainstorm possible solutions. 3. Make dua (and pray istikharah). 4. Select the best option. 5. Plan the steps needed to carry out the option. 6. Put it into action. 7. Review how it went. Nanni went through several of these steps.”— Jameela Ho, Ilma Education

“Nanni’s Hijab was valuable to read for several reasons. First and foremost, it can help children empathize with victims of bullying and with those of different backgrounds. It also tackles the issue of bullying, showing Nanni’s understandable urge to lash out, but promoting peaceful conflict resolution. This book has prompted conversation in our household several times already, and we only received it in the mail yesterday.” — Ms. VD, Glass of Wine, Glass of Milk#NannisHijab by Khadijah AbdulHaqq Author

“I’m not one for girly stories , but never judge a book by its cover. Nanni’s Hijab by Khadija Abdul-Haqq is a story full of girl power , life lessons and finding solutions to your problems. The bright , bold and confident illustrations are eye catching adding a bit of glamour and girliness. The more I thought about this book the more lessons I learned as a fully grown adult.” — Our Amanah, Our Future  

“Highly recommended and with a five star rating, I would suggest all moms along with their young girls must read this book as its a real gem that will teach your young Muslimah some very important traits and habits in life that they will need forever.”— Random Bytes From Life

“Hijab makes our life beautiful more than anyone can imagine.” — A Rat’s Nibble

“Nanni has to face things that she never thought she will. Her sincere love for Allah assists her to overcome her struggles like a true Muslim princess.”— DeenplusBook

“Mama: Did you learn something from the book?
Aisha: Yes, I learned that sometimes you get angry when people treat you bad but that doesn’t mean you should treat them bad as well.”— Naptime is Sacred

“This book is well timed and well needed in this age of islamophobia and hijab/niqab bans.”— Rayeesa Tabassum, A Muslimah’s Writings 

Nanni’s Hijab delves into concepts of bullying, dealing with a bully, and the consequences of bullying. The book touches upon seeking the Help of Allah and conveys a form of da’wah, which Nanni uses to overcome bullying by Leslie. A wonderful read for 6 to 10 year olds, although my 3 year old loved it too.”— Umm Afraz Muhammed Blog
