We Are Little Feminists: Hair ( We Are Little Feminists #2 )

Boardbook

Beautiful, full-color photos of real-life families showcase all the wonderful forms of hair (curly, straight, twists, locs, covered hair, body hair, even no hair) in this empowering and delightful board book.

  • Each spread features simple, poetic text for building vocabulary and empathy.
  • HAIR helps families and educators discuss raice, celebrate difference, and challenge racism.
  • Created for 0-5-year-olds: the book’s photographs help infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to recognize faces, hair, and bodies that are both different and like their own.

      About the Series We Are Little Feminists is the identity-affirming board book series developed to raise intersectional feminists. Children love photos of everyday kids & families, but only 13% of children's books represent our diverse world. We Are Little Feminists pairs beautiful photos with playful, rhythmic text to help families and classrooms stand against racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism.

      "These books are the most inclusive (and beautiful!) board books I have ever seen!

      ...Each board book is full of beautiful photos depicting all kinds of kids and families from all different backgrounds, traditions, ages, shapes, and skin tones. The accompanying text in each book is pragmatic and joyful, creating a board book that transcends age. Seriously. I read this set of books to my 4th graders and they were transfixed!
