"Why do you wear a hijab?"

Her mum smiled and said, "There are lost of reasons why I choose to wear my hijab."

Amal Abou-Eid's simple, yet informative book, illustrated delightfully by younger sister, Samira Abou-Eid, paves the way for discussion about the reasons people choose to wear religious clothing and accessories.


Passionate educator Amal Abou-Eid is an Australian mother of two with a strong connection to her Lebanese heritage. Inspired by her faith, and her wish for people to live harmoniously and without fear, Amal has turned her hand to writing. Supported by her family, and with these values firmly at its core, Amal’s writing is honest and kind, and she hopes to spread acceptance and tolerance through her work. When she’s not busy with her young family or her career, Amal has been known to thoroughly enjoy that Aussie staple, BBQ Shapes, and she has an adventurous streak too – she bungee jumped in New Zealand!
