A story about Helping Yourself and Helping Other People(TM)

Khadijah goes to School


KGTS explores the message of Progress through the message of “Helping Yourself and Helping Other People™.”

Themes: Giving, literacy, lifelong learning, human potential, self-development, identity, diversity (in thought and culture).

Bonus: In today’s climate of Islamophobia, KGTS is also a book that features Khadijah, a young child in a hijab (head scarf). The book also opens from the right (like Arabic) to convey perspectives. The curious reader will ask questions and hence, the book serves as a bridge between people, cultures and ultimately understanding.

It also has resource questions at the end of the book to reinforce the story.
