Recently, I had a chance to speak with the people of CureSearch. “CureSearch for Children’s Cancer funds and supports targeted and innovated children’s cancer research with measurable results, and is the authoritative source of information and resources for all those affected by children’s cancer.” They were kind enough to write an article about “There’s Something Different About My Hair” to share with their followers. Take a look at the article here. Thank you, CureSearch, for your time, interest, and for all that you do for children and families battling cancer.
In addition, the past few days, I have had the opportunity to go into classrooms and read “There’s Something Different About My Hair” to some pretty great kids. The questions they ask show they are listening, and most importantly, learning the message of the book. This book has served as a wonderful conversation-started about how we look, feel about ourselves, and the fact that every person is different.
I think it’s so important to have these conversations with children at young ages to promote differences, individuality, and to help bring down the amount of bullying that takes place. Here is a picture of some special friends I made at Pattison Elementary School in Milford, OH. We had a great time reading, chatting, and making self portraits to celebrate what we like most about ourselves.
Thank you for inviting me in and allowing me to meet you all this week!
