Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Proudest Blue:

"Inspiring... The lovely, playful illustrations by Aly capture the spirit of imagination and sisterly solidarity in the face of bullying."―
New York Times Book Review

* "Memorable and inspiring... Triumphant and true."―
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "A lovely blend of emotional lyricism and closely observed everyday life."―
Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Aly's ink-wash-and-pencil illustrations settle and soar along with the language.... This story, as both window and mirror, inevitably educates, but more important, it encourages pride in and respect for hijab through a tale of two sisters, their bond strengthened by faith."―
Booklist, starred review

* "This excellent story about identity, visibility, and confidence, touches on rites of passage, bonds between sisters, and bullying and is unapologetic in tackling misconceptions and demanding equality."―
School Library Journal, starred review

"Hatem Aly's ink-wash and watercolour illustrations perfectly complement the lyricism of Muhammed and Ali's moving text."―
The Globe and Mail --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can’t recommend this book enough, I am so happy I found it!
By Jewlz on July 27, 2020
I own a little licensed daycare/preschool. I’ve told every preschool/daycare provider I know about this book. We are doing an ‘around the world’ unit this summer and I have kids 3-5. I bought this book for the week we talked about Egypt & the Middle East. This book is beautiful to look at. As soon as the kids discovered this in our classroom they were FASCINATED. They couldn’t wait for the unit to come up for me to read it & asked every day. I’m in a weird little pocket of the PNW that is not very diverse. As a provider I loved that this book gave us the perfect opportunity to talk about and explore hijab without any kindof religious subtext to potentially concern parents. We talked about how the little sister was so proud of her big sister & her beautiful hijab. We talked about how the big sister was so strong and brave. We talked about how the words of the disrespectful boys in the story would make us feel and how the mother had taught the girls that hurtful words belonged to the people who said them and were not theirs to keep. It was such a *perfect* story to bring about the conversation of what hijab is, to help the children respect and appreciate the beauty in cultural differences.
