Comments The Hijab Boutique

  1. The Hijab Boutique by Michelle Khan feels like a religious book It s about one big happy family whose members mostly do the right thing If there are unsavory characters, they re minor ones and often clich s And even Khan admits she wrote this book to deliver a message According to an interview at The Kube Blog, she wanted to teach the values of Islam surrounding the hijab Yet I moderately enjoyed this simple albeit preachy tale about fifth grade student Farah, whose is given the assignment of br [...]


  2. 3.5 starsAs a Children s book, I loved the idea behind this book and how well written it was It spreads cultural awareness as it as well does in portraying Muslims interpretation of Hijabs This 50 pages book felt like a short story to me that I think would be perfect for an evening read with a cuppa tea


  3. I won this book a few weeks ago and only received it recently I finished reading it fairly quickly.The Hijab Boutique was a short and really sweet book with well rounded female characters The mother daughter relationship the was featured was really lovely It was also very informative.I suggest that mothers and daughters should read this together as I m sure they would enjoy it.


  4. The Hijab Boutique by Michelle KhanReviewed by Moirae the fates book reviewsFarah enjoyed her private girls school and fun with her friends Then an assignment meant she had to talk about her mother for International Woman s Day in front of the whole class Compared to her friends glamorous actress, make up artist, and tap dancing mothers, what can her modest mother possibly have that is worth sharing with her classmates To Farah s surprise, her mother was quite the business woman before putting h [...]


  5. 3.5 starsWhen Farah is asked to complete an assignment at her all girls art school for International Womans Day, Farah is less then pleased when she learns she needs to bring in an item that represents her mother Farah s hijab wearing, modest mother is nothing like her classmates mothers, so what can she bring This was a cute but very short chapter book that has an overall good message that differences are what make us interesting and unique and not what isolate us or make us strange It was a bo [...]


  6. I received this book on Thursday and had it finished that night It was a wonderfully written book Not only was it a wonderful story, but it helped explain the costume of Hijabi My 10 year old daughter was fascinated by the story She loved the way the mother and daughter s relationship played out We talked about all the different ideas that were so perfectly woven into this story It also helped to open the door to asking her aunt some questions that had been on her mind about being a Muslim My si [...]


  7. A good way for a child to learn a little about the Muslim traditions and ideas Would be a good introduction for students who are curious about why some Muslim women dress the way they do and why they choose to wear the hijab Written for the upper elementary grades 4 6 Very short.I recieved a copy through a First Reads giveaway and just finally got around to reading it Thanks for the opportunity.


  8. This book is adorable I really enjoyed the relationship between Farah and her mother They are both strong female characters, which gives young girls a real sense of connection to a culture that may be quite unlike their own The Hijab Boutique although a quick read, develops characters that a reader can relate to, and care about I think young women will find this book both enchanting and informative.


  9. I liked the message of this book, but the book was sub par It was published in the UK but set in Los Angeles, but the characters all used British English The way the kids in the book spoke was not authentic Kids don t talk the way these kids talked I wish the book did the wonderful message justice.


  10. I really liked this book because it showed culture and that you can use this culture to do interesting things You don t have to be ashamed or make it a secret 10 year old reviewer


  11. When Farah, a young Muslim growing up in Los Angeles has to present a object that defines her mother for International Women s Day she wonders how her modest mother would compare to her friend s glamourous and accomplished moms Learning about her mother helps her to discover her own cultural and religious identity A wonderfully written book that illuminates individual choice around the hot button issue of wearing a headscarf or hijab Written from the perspective of a young girl, her transformati [...]


  12. This is a short chapter book, marketed toward female readers 10 and up I can t imagine many young men finding this book of any interest I could be wrong The story follows Farrah, a young Muslim girl growing up with her widowed mother She has all the characteristics to easily relate to her, until we learn that her family is quite wealthy when her father was alive, they had been quite wealthy and they live in a gated community It is an odd choice, to have Farrah living quite a privileged life I th [...]


  13. I WANTED to like this book, I really did, but in the end it just fell flat The dialog and writing style is not effective, nor does it fit the theme of the story that of a middle school girl Even if the main character, Farah, is in a prestigious school middle school girls just don t talk the way she thinks and talks in this book Middle schoolers just don t think Read I just have to find a solution by myself I m pretty sure people don t think that way at all The book reads as an educational treat [...]


  14. Originally reviewed at quixoticmagpieI am very excitedly going to add this to our school library collection The area I live in actually has a large Muslim population, and every year we are enrolling and Muslim children into our school, whose mothers dress traditionally, in a hijab I like this book because it is explains in a very understandable way, about how and why the women in the Muslim faith choose to wear the hijab The author explains that for every woman the reason is different, and lis [...]


  15. The illustrations were cute Farah is supposed to be an American girl living in LA, but the spellings for many words are British defence, programme , which detracts from the sense of place The book does come across as preachy during Farah s presentation at the end, and throughout the book Farah s voice just doesn t sound right the way she speaks is not realistic for her age The dialogue often feels wooden, awkward, and forced If you are looking for a book with a Muslim heroine, Does My Head Look [...]


  16. From contest, I m not sure if this is an advanced copy.The Hijab Boutique is a good children s book about accepting people who have different cultures or lifestlyes The main character Farah worries about how to represent her mother who is not like all of the other girl s moms Her mom isn t concerned about fashion or the way she looks Farah realizes that her mom is kind and unique she wouldn t want her mom to be any other way.
