Representation matters! The first two books in The Rayne Project series are entitled "Me and My Hair" and "My Big Dream". Our books are told from the perspective of a young black girl named Rayne. She brings her readers along as she navigates through life and discovers who she is in relation to the world around her.
“One in five children and parents look for characters who are diverse, differently abled or break stereotypes.”
-Scholastic Kid’s and Family Report
Children learn who they are through their experiences and open conversations with adults who care; with this in mind, each book is created with a “Making Connections” page. This will allow for families and educators to have meaningful child-centered conversations around the themes of the book and beyond.
