By Navjot Kaur; Illustrated by Jaspreet Sandhu
Explore human difference with a question many young people ask when faced with ignorance – Do you know who I am?
The narrative’s rhythm flows alongside the red fabric of a dastaar (turban worn by members of the Sikh community), connecting the character’s identity to cultures from around the world. Mindful words are embroidered into the dastaar. Each page turn invites you to adjust your lens, and discover more about what the lion represents to peoples of the world.
“When we learn something new, it makes each of us stronger.”
Join this little human’s quest of self-discovery through the metaphor of a lion’s mane.
