November/December 2022: Young Readers
For November/December 2022 and in honour of International Day of Tolerance (November 16), World Children's Day (November 20), and Human Right's Day (December 10), we are featuring Sharee Miller’s ‘Don’t Touch My Hair!’. The book is based around Sharee’s own experiences of feeling uncomfortable and disrespected when others would touch her hair without her permission. In the book, a young girl named Aria attempts to find ways to avoid the many curious hands that want to touch her hair. The book highlights the importance of respecting personal boundaries and asking permission. It also serves as a tool to empower young people to say ‘no’ when they feel uncomfortable in any situation.
