The Blue Scarf by Mohamed Danawi, Illustrated by Ruaida Mannaa
An inspiring story about cultural identity, being true to oneself, and finding a new home as a refugee.
Layla lives in a beautiful blue world. One day, her mother gives her a gift--a blue scarf that Layla lovingly wears around her neck. But when a gust of wind carries the scarf away, Layla sets out to find it, traveling by boat to various worlds of different colors. But her scarf is nowhere to be found. Eventually, Layla lands at the shores of a Rainbow world and discovers the secret of her lost scarf while also finding a welcoming new home. A beautiful and poignant refugee story about identity, emigration, and acceptance told by Mohamed Danawi and brought to life in gorgeous color by illustrator Ruaida Mannaa.
