Our Story

We are teachers who banded together during the pandemic. We didn't like a lot of what we were seeing (racism, hunger, injustice). After lots of crying and complaining, we wrote a book through our lens. A lens that teaches social, emotional skills and wraps it around our story - the story that includes people of color. It is important that our story be told and reflected so that children can see themselves reflected positively on pages and screens. Positive stories and images give rise to a sense of pride that transfers to individual esteem and builds up confidence in children.
