Arriving at school, Rosie is dismayed to see the kids on the playground taunting her classmate Fadimata, who is Muslim and wears a headscarf. Rosie comes up with a plan. Rosie has a red cape she likes to wear, so she asks Fadimata if she would turn the cape into a headscarf for her. Seeing the fun they are having, the other kids in their class don’t want to be left out. The next day they all show up with fabric and ask Fadimata to make them headscarves as well.

Editorial Reviews

[The Rosie the Red] series presents examples of real life experiences our students face. It can be embedded throughout the curriculum. The messages are terrific and are suited to children of all ages... This could be used to develop a school wide anti-bullying initiative and a commitment to social justice. You can integrate social justice, language, arts, drama, health, music and more. The possibilities are endless. - ETFO Voice
