Is My Mom Like Other Moms?


Being different isn't always easy. Walk through town with a new friend as she sees how her mom is different from other moms, and discovers what really makes her the same.

Written and illustrated by bestselling author of The Story of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (GKP, 2016), this visually enchanting early reader celebrates the hijab, but does so recognizing that in the West, Muslim girls may feel different, and, accepting those feelings, takes its young readers on a journey from curiosity bordering on doubt to certainty, confidence, and pride in their Muslim identity through the practical example of their loving hijabi moms.

This book celebrates moms over 43 pages, but focuses on the little things that make moms different and ultimately the same.  Told from a little girl’s perspective as she sees other moms and daughters and wonders if her mom’s hijab makes her different.  Some moms have spiky hair or curly hair, she notices some have black hair others blonde. Ultimately she realizes it isn’t the outside appearance that make a mom special.
