    How I wish I would have had this book in my classroom last year! I had a student who wore a khimar, she called it hijab, but I didn't have any books that portrayed characters in a hijab. At the library, I found One Green Apple by Eve Bunting, that was it. Everyone needs a mirror when t...

    This is one of the sweetest books ever, with glowing illustrations by Ebony Glenn (the cover reminds me so much of the similar profile of Lisa looking at Corduroy). A little girl plays dress-up with her mother's khimar (head scarf). Muslim representation in picture books is still scarc...

    So cute. And I love the pictures. ...

    This book is must read for children and adults. The book talks about a young Muslim American girl who loves her mom khimar. It's a beautiful story about a daughter that wants to be just like her mom. The illustrations alone make you feel like your in the story. The bright pastel colors...

    A little long for story time, but a great book to expose kids to other cultures. Would be fun to read with What Can You Do With A Rebozo? ...

    The pictures in this book are beautiful. It is so loving. I loved all the things the mom's khimar represented to the little girl: a queen's golden train, a mama bird's protective wings, a super-hero's cape. I loved the description of the mother's smell. This book was so full of love an...

    I must admit the art work made me pick it up. The colors are so inviting and warm!! The love you see between the mother and child is so real. She love everything about her mother even the khimar is wears. ...

    I found the pastel colors of this book immediately inviting. And the illustrations are so Disney-esque, bright, and happy--a promise fulfilled by the rest of the book! A little Muslim girl plays dress-up with her mother's khimar. We see her in the closet with the many-colored headscarv...

    The illustrations in this just glow! The character of the little girl is super adorable and relatable, and I love all the ways she pretends with her scarf - it reminds me of my own little girl and the towels she uses for capes and Rapunzel-hair. ...

    Wow! What a great book! The illustrations are adorable, and the main character is so relatable. She's imaginative and loves to play - pretending that the khimar (hijab) is the Queen's golden train, or golden wings to fly, or a superhero cape. She shows how wearing this scarf brings...

    "Mommy shakes her head, but her eyes are smiling." I appreciate that Mom-Mom doesn't wear a khimar or go to the mosque, and the author addresses that it doesn't matter... "we love each other just the same." The very end got a little weird in that it made it seem like the mom suddenl...

    This reminded me of My Mother's Sari (and also The Boy & the Bindi ). I think I like this one better. This feels richer to me than My Mother's Sari, but it's been a couple years since I read that -- and they may just be trying to do different things. [Edit 5/31/18: I got a copy ...

    A beautiful book about the bond of a mother and daughter. Wonderful illustrations. Working in a library, I really appreciate the simple representation of the Khimar and how it is a part of their lives and an item which bonds the two. A wonderful 'diversity' book that shows an aspect o...

    Luminous, lyrical, and lovely. This story follows a young girl as she plays dress up with her mother's khimar. The girl uses it as a crown, a cape, and wings to fly. It's a beautiful exploration of imagination and family love. There's a power in young children seeing children like them...

    This book celebrates the bond of the mother and daughter. The daughter delights in the colorful patterns and fabrics of her mother?s Khimars, especially the yellow one. The bright playful illustrations emote the feeling of joy and peace as she heads out into the world wearing the khi...

    Mommy's Khimar follows a young girl as she plays with her favorite of her mother's many khimars - the scarves that she wears whenever leaving the house. With illustrations as delightful and bright as Mommy's khimar collection, the book celebrates imaginary play and the love of family a...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It is currently checked out at the library and I so wanted to take another peek at it prior to adding my thoughts. This magical book successfully tapped into the spirit of a young child playing make-believe in their parent's wardrobe. I fondly rem...

    Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow?s Mommy?s Khimar is a beautiful picture book about a little girl who plays and imagines with the fabrics of mommy?s khimars. The yellow one is her favorite in which she can shine like a sun, be like a queen, or spread golden wings over her baby brother. ...

    Told from the perspective of a young Muslim girl, this book will be relatable to any girl who loves to dress up in Mommy's clothes. This book is wonderful on many levels -- reflecting children who may not often see themselves in books, providing a window into a Muslim culture, showing ...

    I read this to my boys. We liked it and it started a bit of a discussion. The only thing I wish was in it was the pronunciation of "khimar" somewhere in it, maybe in a brief note at the end? For readers not familiar with the terminology, it would be a big help. The author/narrator says...

    This is a beautiful, sweet story of a special mother-daughter relationship, and, though the khimar is a cultural tradition that some will identify with and some will learn about, children everywhere will recognize the play and imagination of the main character. While even within this f...

    Mommy's Khimar is a beautiful book. The main character, a young girl, imagines all of the wonderful things she can be when she wears her mother's yellow khimar. Children will relate to her fun antics while also learning about the khimar. The illustrations pop with color! I reviewed ...

    Beautiful and poignant #ownvoices book about a girl talking about wearing Khimar (also known as hijab) and how she feels wonderful, beautiful, strong, and admires her mother and other people wearing Khimar. Wonderfully received by a Somali-Muslim coworker and her community of friends, ...

    This adorably illustrated picture book stars a young Muslim girl as she describes her mother's khimar and its many imaginative uses. The girl's grandmother is a Christian, not a Muslim, but as the girl says, "We are a family and we love each other just the same." In her Arabic class, b...

    The pictures in this book are beautiful. It is so loving. I loved all the things the mom's khimar represented to the little girl: a queen's golden train, a mama bird's protective wings, a super-hero's cape. I loved the description of the mother's smell. This book was so full of love an...

    I must admit the art work made me pick it up. The colors are so inviting and warm!! The love you see between the mother and child is so real. She love everything about her mother even the khimar is wears. ...

    I found the pastel colors of this book immediately inviting. And the illustrations are so Disney-esque, bright, and happy--a promise fulfilled by the rest of the book! A little Muslim girl plays dress-up with her mother's khimar. We see her in the closet with the many-colored headscarv...

    The illustrations in this just glow! The character of the little girl is super adorable and relatable, and I love all the ways she pretends with her scarf - it reminds me of my own little girl and the towels she uses for capes and Rapunzel-hair. ...

    Wow! What a great book! The illustrations are adorable, and the main character is so relatable. She's imaginative and loves to play - pretending that the khimar (hijab) is the Queen's golden train, or golden wings to fly, or a superhero cape. She shows how wearing this scarf brings...

    "Mommy shakes her head, but her eyes are smiling." I appreciate that Mom-Mom doesn't wear a khimar or go to the mosque, and the author addresses that it doesn't matter... "we love each other just the same." The very end got a little weird in that it made it seem like the mom suddenl...

    This reminded me of My Mother's Sari (and also The Boy & the Bindi ). I think I like this one better. This feels richer to me than My Mother's Sari, but it's been a couple years since I read that -- and they may just be trying to do different things. [Edit 5/31/18: I got a copy ...

    A beautiful book about the bond of a mother and daughter. Wonderful illustrations. Working in a library, I really appreciate the simple representation of the Khimar and how it is a part of their lives and an item which bonds the two. A wonderful 'diversity' book that shows an aspect o...

    Luminous, lyrical, and lovely. This story follows a young girl as she plays dress up with her mother's khimar. The girl uses it as a crown, a cape, and wings to fly. It's a beautiful exploration of imagination and family love. There's a power in young children seeing children like them...

    This book celebrates the bond of the mother and daughter. The daughter delights in the colorful patterns and fabrics of her mother?s Khimars, especially the yellow one. The bright playful illustrations emote the feeling of joy and peace as she heads out into the world wearing the khi...

    Mommy's Khimar follows a young girl as she plays with her favorite of her mother's many khimars - the scarves that she wears whenever leaving the house. With illustrations as delightful and bright as Mommy's khimar collection, the book celebrates imaginary play and the love of family a...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It is currently checked out at the library and I so wanted to take another peek at it prior to adding my thoughts. This magical book successfully tapped into the spirit of a young child playing make-believe in their parent's wardrobe. I fondly rem...

    Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow?s Mommy?s Khimar is a beautiful picture book about a little girl who plays and imagines with the fabrics of mommy?s khimars. The yellow one is her favorite in which she can shine like a sun, be like a queen, or spread golden wings over her baby brother. ...

    Told from the perspective of a young Muslim girl, this book will be relatable to any girl who loves to dress up in Mommy's clothes. This book is wonderful on many levels -- reflecting children who may not often see themselves in books, providing a window into a Muslim culture, showing ...

    I read this to my boys. We liked it and it started a bit of a discussion. The only thing I wish was in it was the pronunciation of "khimar" somewhere in it, maybe in a brief note at the end? For readers not familiar with the terminology, it would be a big help. The author/narrator says...

    The illustrations in this just glow! The character of the little girl is super adorable and relatable, and I love all the ways she pretends with her scarf - it reminds me of my own little girl and the towels she uses for capes and Rapunzel-hair. ...

    Wow! What a great book! The illustrations are adorable, and the main character is so relatable. She's imaginative and loves to play - pretending that the khimar (hijab) is the Queen's golden train, or golden wings to fly, or a superhero cape. She shows how wearing this scarf brings...

    "Mommy shakes her head, but her eyes are smiling." I appreciate that Mom-Mom doesn't wear a khimar or go to the mosque, and the author addresses that it doesn't matter... "we love each other just the same." The very end got a little weird in that it made it seem like the mom suddenl...

    This reminded me of My Mother's Sari (and also The Boy & the Bindi ). I think I like this one better. This feels richer to me than My Mother's Sari, but it's been a couple years since I read that -- and they may just be trying to do different things. [Edit 5/31/18: I got a copy ...

    A beautiful book about the bond of a mother and daughter. Wonderful illustrations. Working in a library, I really appreciate the simple representation of the Khimar and how it is a part of their lives and an item which bonds the two. A wonderful 'diversity' book that shows an aspect o...

    Luminous, lyrical, and lovely. This story follows a young girl as she plays dress up with her mother's khimar. The girl uses it as a crown, a cape, and wings to fly. It's a beautiful exploration of imagination and family love. There's a power in young children seeing children like them...

    This book celebrates the bond of the mother and daughter. The daughter delights in the colorful patterns and fabrics of her mother?s Khimars, especially the yellow one. The bright playful illustrations emote the feeling of joy and peace as she heads out into the world wearing the khi...

    Mommy's Khimar follows a young girl as she plays with her favorite of her mother's many khimars - the scarves that she wears whenever leaving the house. With illustrations as delightful and bright as Mommy's khimar collection, the book celebrates imaginary play and the love of family a...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It is currently checked out at the library and I so wanted to take another peek at it prior to adding my thoughts. This magical book successfully tapped into the spirit of a young child playing make-believe in their parent's wardrobe. I fondly rem...

    Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow?s Mommy?s Khimar is a beautiful picture book about a little girl who plays and imagines with the fabrics of mommy?s khimars. The yellow one is her favorite in which she can shine like a sun, be like a queen, or spread golden wings over her baby brother. ...

    Told from the perspective of a young Muslim girl, this book will be relatable to any girl who loves to dress up in Mommy's clothes. This book is wonderful on many levels -- reflecting children who may not often see themselves in books, providing a window into a Muslim culture, showing ...

    How I wish I would have had this book in my classroom last year! I had a student who wore a khimar, she called it hijab, but I didn't have any books that portrayed characters in a hijab. At the library, I found One Green Apple by Eve Bunting, that was it. Everyone needs a mirror when t...

    A little long for story time, but a great book to expose kids to other cultures. Would be fun to read with What Can You Do With A Rebozo? ...
