A Lion's Mane
Central to this story is a young Sikh boy, who explores what it means to be "different just like you''. The first page turn encourages deeper conversations about identity and belonging with the question: "Do you know who I am?" Join this little human's quest of self-discovery through the metaphor of a lion's mane. The narrative's rhythm flows alongside the red fabric of a dastaar (turban worn by members of the Sikh community), strengthening the character's identity with each new word stitched into the dastaar. "When we learn something new, it makes each of us stronger." Skipping Stones Honor Book Award Winner for Multicultural and International Awareness.
