Meet Rosie the Red: a seven-year-old girl who's not afraid to stand up for what's right.
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. The other kids in their class don’t want to be left out, so they ask Fadimata to make them headscarves as well. The experience confirms Rosie's belief that if you tilt your head and look at things differently, you can see the world through someone else's eyes.
