More, more, more: Intersection Allies

The reprint of  IntersectionAllies  ships to stores, individuals, Amazon, etc. in early July, 2020. Thank you for your patience!

Intersection Allies, We Make Room for All shares the stories of children of diverse experiences as they come together to be allies for each other. The text rhymes, but it carries a breadth of information. Front and back matter will aid further discussion and empower caregivers to confidently discuss our societal need for understanding and compassion for all.  

Flat, patterned, simple shape illustrations flow throughout. These raise the accessibility for topics such as protests and immigration. 

Here is a book to increase awareness of the beautiful and different life experiences of many. May we see our intersectionality and be allies with all.
