Summary

A young girl celebrates the beauty and significance of her older sister's decision to wear the hijab.

Asiya's hijab is like the ocean and the sky, no line between them, saying hello with a loud wave.

It's Faizah's first day of school, and her older sister Asiya's first day of hijab - made of a beautiful blue fabric. But not everyone sees hijab as beautiful. In the face of hurtful, confusing words, will Faizah find new ways to be strong?

This is an uplifting, universal story of new experiences, the unbreakable bond shared by siblings and of being proud of who you are, from Olympic medallist Ibtihaj Muhammad.

NOTE: Ibtihaj Muhammad is a fencer and was the first Muslim American woman in a hijab to compete for the United States in the Olympic Games.
