Hana’s Hundreds of Hijabs

Book Synopsis

Hana has a humongous collection of hijabs and accessories – and her hijab is always styled superbly. But when her overflowing collection gets a little out of hand, Hana knows something needs to be done . . . and comes up with a clever plan for sharing her talents and possessions with her community! Young makers will chuckle along with this humorous tale of creative problem-solving and learning to help others.

Our Review Panel says...

Hana’s Hundreds of Hijabs is a colourful romp through the daily life of a bright and kind little girl who loves to make life radiant and her friends happy.

This is a modern tale which hits the mark – the language is upbeat and contemporary with talk of upcycling and accessorising as well as second-hand stores and mall shopping. The text is full of alliteration – for example where the ‘cousins’ closets’, ‘haphazard hijabs’ and ‘peculiar problems’ all act to create a bubbly storyline full of rhythm and rhyme.

Razeena Omar Gutta spins sparkling story with a strong, central female character – a little like a picture book version of a Yassmin Abdel-Magied ‘Layla’ novel – it’s vibrant and fun – something meaningful for younger readers with an underlying message of generosity and kindness.
