We Are Little Feminists: Hair helps families and educators discuss race, 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.
