The Arabic Quilt | An Immigrant Story
Kanzi's family has moved from Egypt to America, and on her first day in a new school, what she wants more than anything is to fit in. Maybe that's why she forgets to take the kofta sandwich her mother has made for her lunch, but that backfires when Mama shows up at school with the sandwich. Mama wears a hijab and calls her daughter Habibti (dear one). When she leaves, the teasing starts.
That night, Kanzi wraps herself in the beautiful Arabic quilt her teita (grandmother) gave her. It smells like Teita's home in Cairo and that comforts Kanzi. What she doesn't know yet is that the quilt will help her find new friends.
