Books for Muslim students

My mother shared with me “My name is Bilal”, a book for children about Bilal and his sister Ayesha’s experience at a new school. It’s shocking to me that it’s so rare to find depictions of children in traditional dress, especially being in Toronto which at one point was designated by the UN as the most ethnically diverse city in the world.
