Notes From Your Bookseller

Caldecott Medal-winning Carole Lindstrom, who gifted us the powerful We are the Water Protectors, gloriously follows up her New York Times best seller with My Powerful Hair. Paired triumphantly with Steph Littlebird’s debut art, My Powerful Hair is an empowering and healing celebration of hair and its significance in Indigenous cultures. A beautiful, potent tome from start to finish and like We are the Water Protectors a must-read.

From the award-winning and bestselling author of We Are Water Protectors comes an empowering picture book about family history, self-expression, and reclaiming your identity

Our ancestors say our hair is our memories,
our source of strength and power,
a celebration of our lives.

Mom never had long hair—she was told it was too wild. Grandma couldn’t have long hair—hers was taken from her. But one young girl can’t wait to grow her hair long: for herself, for her family, for her connection to her culture and the Earth, and to honor the strength and resilience of those who came before her.

From Carole Lindstrom, author of the New York Times bestseller and Caldecott Medal winner We Are Water Protectors, and debut illustrator Steph Littlebird comes an empowering and healing celebration of hair and its significance across Indigenous cultures.
