About Shawnta Smith Sayner
Awe. Inspiration. Wonder. Watch these feelings soar when you share this fresh and fun children’s book, full of representation and affirmation for people of color, and exploration and appreciation for everyone to enjoy.
Let’s Share! A Hair Story is a multicultural children’s picture book with adorable illustrations and rhyme, featuring people of color pursuing different professions and passions — all with big smiles and so many styles! A Hair Story is written in honor of kids of color (both girls and boys!) whose beauty and pride deserve to be honored and explored. It’s about hair, but it’s also about so much more… It’s about knowing you have choices. It’s about loving yourself and others. It’s about dreaming and believing that you can do anything!
Part of the Let’s Share! series, A Hair Story encourages BIPOC and allies to celebrate and explore together. A beautiful gift, this book is a simple yet powerful way to contribute to:
- More diverse libraries, inclusive classrooms, and empowering schools.
- More understanding relationships, supportive communities, and successful futures.
- More nurturing environments, caring homes, and mindful lives.
- More self-esteem, self-worth, and self-love.
Admiring the beauty, versatility, possibility, and wonder of communities of color, Let’s Share! A Hair Story invites readers of all ages and backgrounds to lift each other up with important messages about expression, esteem, and empowerment. Whether a cultural interpretation, a creative decision, or something else entirely — take joy in the many ways people of color can express themselves, and in all that they can be!
