The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | There should be more books like this: in bright, appealing illustrations it tells children how people of different faiths cover their heads to show their love for God. Working on the principle that learning about each other makes it easy for us to be more understanding and therefore tolerant, each page features a man, woman or child with a short, friendly line of text to explain who they are and to name their headpiece (phonetic pronunciation is provided too). Amongst others, we’re introduced to a Sikh man in a Turban, a woman in a Tichel and a young boy in a Kippah. Their smiling faces immediately engage our attention making this a great book to encourage dialogue and discussion. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Hats of Faith by Medeia Cohan-Petrolino

This beautifully illustrated, board book aims to teach children, parents and educators about the shared custom of head covering across the Jewish, Sikh, Christian, Rastafarian, and Islamic faiths. Introducing accurate terminology and brightly coloured images of each headpiece, Hats of Faith helps prepare young children for our culturally diverse, modern world and encourages tolerance and understanding.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
