    ‘Why does mum wear a Hijab’ is a fantastic source of enlightenment for children to learn the purpose of hijab. I loved reading it to my children and we all enjoyed the storyline. This book fosters mutual respect amongst all the great and diverse cultures and religions in Australia. Well done Amal, and we look forward to reading more of your work.

    As a veiled woman I cherished every moment of this book. Religion can, at times, be a difficult topic to discuss with children. I loved that I was able to communicate a complex issue in a simple and accessible manner to my children. In a world plagued by fear, division and uncertainty, Amal’s book paves the way for discussion and understanding. Like the mother in the book, I too cherish my crown and my identity. Well done Amal and please keep writing.

    We just received ‘Why does mum wear a hijab’ and ‘My Muslim mate’ yesterday and my children haven’t put it down since.
    I am very happy to add this to our home library as it’s very relatable and good to see books about Aussie Muslims.
    Look forward to future books.

    Thank you immensely Amal for beautifully delivering to your readers a fun & child friendly, inclusive book. That compliments diversity while still maintaining the importance off the hijab & what it means to the blessed woman who choose to wear it, whilst respecting the individuality of other. I brought 2 copies for my grand children & look forward to gifting your books to many others loved ones. Insha’Allah your fountain of knowledge & ink flows to inspire many. XOXOX
