Welcome and thanks for visiting!

I’m Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow and I write children’s books! My debut picture book is  Mommy’s Khimar (illus. Ebony Glenn, Salaam Reads/Simon & Schuster 2018). My upcoming book is Your Name is a Song (illus. Luisa Uribe, The Innovation Press 2020), a picture book about a girl who learns how to appreciate the music of names from various ethnicities as well that of her own.
