Islamic Content: Kindness
Faizah wants to live in a kind world. She spends her recess putting her kindness into action in different ways. However, when she is about to take a sibling photo in school, can kindness find her back?
AHH! I have been eagerly waiting for this book! I absolutely loved The Proudest Blue and the sisterly love that penetrated through its pages. This book is no different. The love that is passed on from Mama, to Asiya and then to Faizah is so warm and tender. We see the world of kindness come full circle in this beautiful story with Muslim girls and hijab. I absolutely love the innocent voice of Faizah that is consistent with its first book, which makes it feel like a continuation sequel yet they can be read as stand alone books that just touch your heart so delicately. The sisterly bond, the genuine friendships, kindness that is shaped in different forms is beautifully presented. The poetic text paired with vivid illustrations just make this book a complete package of perfection. This book is full of heart.
It comes out in January 2023 so get your preorders now!
So grateful for this gifted copy from @hbgcanada
