SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT: 

Under My Hijab is told from the perspective of a young girl. Readers are introduced to many of the important women in the girl’s life: her grandmother, mother, aunt, sister, cousin and troop leader. Each of these women wears a hijab and style it in their own unique way when they are out and about. When they are at home, we learn what their hair is like under the hijab and what they like to do.

At the end of the story, the girl shares how all of the women in the story inspired her to wear a hijab just like them, or her own unique way. This book will teach students about individuality and give students an understanding of what it is like to wear a hijab.
