Nusaiba and the 5th Grade Bullies
by Asmaa Hussein (Ruqaya's Bookshelf)
Nusaiba is excited about school – especially show and tell! But after hearing a mean comment in the school hallway about what her mother is wearing, Nusaiba slumps at her desk all day.
Through a fantastical journey of adventure and self-discovery, Nusaiba gains the confidence necessary to embrace her identity and stand up for herself.
An exciting and engaging book about self-acceptance and the importance of standing up to bullying.
"Quality literature that Muslim children can relate to is so hard to find, but this book, mashaAllah, is one that can spark amazing conversations as well (as) children’s imagination. I gave this book to my 7 year old cousin as a gift, and when I spoke with her, she excitedly informed me that she had read it three times in one day and wanted to read it to me again." 5 star review by Aynur.
