Unity's class at school did a cool project recently where they each wrote a poem about "What I like about me." Kids wrote about their brains, their hearts, their knees and hands and eyes and mouths. Unity was the only one who choose to write about her hair. I love this project and teaching kids body acceptance and pride in their differences. Also, I love Unity's fact on the side of her poem, about how she gets her curls from her grandpa's family. (Both grandpas actually!)
Such a sweet project.
