The Swirling Hijaab

KS1: ages 5-7Book

An excellent dual language picture book to introduce as a cross-curricular resource for pupils at Key Stage 1. This book can be used as reading material for English and Languages as well as as a starting point for discussion and project work in Religious Education. It is equally useful for pupils from bilingual families and those from monolingual backgrounds.

A wonderful and imaginative book with simple text and vibrant illustrations that put forward the message of the hijab as a significant part of the Islamic faith for women. A young girl plays with her mother’s hijaab or head scarf and imagines it to be a fort to hide inside, a ship’s sails, a comforter and many more but decides that a head covering is the best use of the hijaab. Celebrating the Islamic religion and faith, this book supports the learning of English and a range of other languages.

This title is available in various dual language editions, eg: English with Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Czech, Farsi, French, German, Gujarati, Italian, Malay, Punjabi, Pushtu, Portuguese, Serbo-Croatian, Somali, Spanish, Tamil, Turkish and Urdu. There is also software available to provide audio versions of the book.
