Noor is a young girl whose female family members wear the hijab. They are all too busy to explain to her why they wear it when she asks, so she imagines lots of hilarious reasons they might do so, including being a ninja!... Read Full Review Noor is a curious little girl, her head is always full of questions. The biggest question on her mind is why her Ammu (mum) and the other women in her family wear a hijab (headscarf). This leads to lots of wonderfully warm-hearted humour as Noor lets her imagination create her own ideas whilst her family are too busy to answer her questions … until her ammu helps her understand the importance of the hijab to Muslim women: a very powerful message of community and identity.Eleven-year-old Kofi is a dreamer who loves swimming, his elders’ stories and his friend Ama.
