THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!
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.
With her new backpack and light-up shoes, Faizah knows the first day of school is going to be special. It’s the start of a brand new year and, best of all, it’s her older sister Asiya’s first day of hijab–a hijab of beautiful blue fabric, like the ocean waving to the sky. But not everyone sees hijab as beautiful, and in the face of hurtful, confusing words, Faizah will find new ways to be strong.
Paired with Hatem Aly’s beautiful, whimsical art, Olympic medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad and Morris Award finalist S.K. Ali bring readers an uplifting, universal story of new experiences, the unbreakable bond between siblings, and of being proud of who you are.
Look around you—plastic is everywhere! It’s in your shoes, pens, toothbrush, car, toys, TV, water bottles, food packaging... It’s almost impossible to get through one day without using it. And it’s creating major problems for our world, our oceans, our animals and marine life, and ourselves.
In The Plastic Problem, from the team that brought you 101 Small Ways to Save the World, you’ll learn how to become a ‘plastic patroller’ instead of a plastic polluter by learning about the easy ways you can cut plastic out of your life. The simple actions found in this practical guide will help you protect our world and inspire your friends and family to do the same. Tips include:
Pack a zero waste travel kit to help your family reduce its rubbish on trips
Take better care of your clothes, swap items with friends, and get excited about hand-me-downs
Switch your toothpaste for natural tooth powders and choose an electric, non-throwaway toothbrush
Take your lunch to school in a reusable container and bring reusable cutlery
Reduce the amount of things you buy, reuse what you have, and recycle what you no longer need
Take reusable bags to the supermarket or with you when you go shopping
Think twice about single-use bottled water and fruit juices
As a future guardian of the planet, you can say no to plastic. Your actions, however small, can make a big difference every day.
Are you up to the challenge?
