I really like this book. I think it is perfect for any age of elementary school students. I think it is a beautiful and encouraging story. I think this can be very inspiring for young girls who are Muslim or any religious affiliations.

My favorite quote from The Proudest Blue! This is a beautiful book. The illustrations are very imaginative and evocative and the story itself is very heartfelt. A girl’s older sister wears her hijab all day for the first time and as the younger sister watches some of the other kids make fun of her for it, she also watched as her sister proudly wears her hijab and doesn’t let the words affect that pride.… (mere)

4 narrative perspectives but one story. Great for finding friendships and communicating with parents. Love the Muslim perspective, particularly the kindness. Very inclusive and they all have their own challenges. Its a little worrying here and there -- the kids do cross some lines they shouldn't and that's pretty scary. But they also learn from their mistakes. It's got a good flow, short chapters, and it just keeps moving along -- will they find the cat? How much trouble will they get into along the way?… (mere)
