Church Hat is a children’s book available on Amazon about a revealing conversation between a young Black boy and his Mother when she finds him playing dressup, trying on her hats. Beautifully illustrated by Janine Carrington, the rhyming narrative captures a parent's loving guidance and the joy of emotional safety in being accepted in a home where you belong.
It's a story for the whole family. If you are looking for a way to talk with your child about feelings that they are different, this bedtime story has tolerance and encouragement with a positive message on supporting a child to be their authentic self. Silence creates secrets, and ignorance can lead to fear.
Children need to read books about other children who look like them. Buy a copy and share how love always wins.
