WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT:
Kamillah is a caterpillar who is struggling to understand life’s changes. With a friend by her side and discovering a beautiful surprise at the end of her cycle, she happily accepts the biggest change of all. Kamillah the Butterfly is a lovely book any child can relate to.
WHY I WROTE IT:
I had two young girls in my life that were worried about body image and it saddened me that they felt this way. I wanted to write something positive that touched on one’s appearance and tie it back to Allah, as it is He, our creator, who makes us the way we are. That includes our shape, size and color. I also wanted to show that through growth, there will always be beautiful surprises, just like a butterfly gets its wings.

Today a mother of six, Shoohada lives a busy life, splitting her days between her writing and her motherly responsibilities. She shares her home in the East End of London with her family, and anytime she has a moment to herself, she reads and writes.
Shoohada has now published four children’s picture books. Her mission is to inspire love and hope among people through her stories, both those that deal with her Muslim faith and those that do not. She plans on continuing to publish her stories for the foreseeable future.
