Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This heartfelt, lushly illustrated homage to an often misunderstood group of girls and women is sure to inspire and entertain both young readers and their adult caregivers. Muslim Girls Rise encourages readers to figure out their passions, ignore anyone who says they can't achieve because of who they are, and pursue their dreams with determination. The art is beautiful, with clean, uncluttered illustrations in soft, warm hues. The book is equally great as a read-aloud or as independent reading for older kids, and it shows all readers the many different paths and pursuits open to them.

The introductory page soberly acknowledges, "People may tell you that you can't do something because of the way you look, dress, or pray," but this collection shows readers that children with dreams can and should pursue their passions, and like the 19 women in this book, they can rise.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
