The Proudest Blue: A Story of Hijab and Family with Sari Mira
Join our resident storyteller Sari Mira for another exciting English-Arabic Storytime from the comfort of your home! Children ages 2-6 and their parents are invited to join Sari who will read The Proudest Blue: A Story of Hijab and Family by Ibtihaj Muhammad, teaching a few Arabic words and phrases along the way.
The Proudest Blue is a powerful, vibrantly illustrated story about the first day of school and two sisters on one’s first day of hijab, by Olympic medalist and social justice activist Ibtihaj Muhammad.
The storytime video will go up at 1 p.m. EDT on Monday, June 20 on our Storytime page, where you can also check out previous Online Storytimes.
Due to the pandemic, we have been closed to the public since March 13. Closed doors mean that our earned revenue streams have dried up, and corporate funds have been pivoted to assist with COVID-19 relief or for their own financial survival. We are looking forward to the day we can safely reopen, but until then, we need your support.
