We are proud to feature Chelsea K. Brown (author), Jaz Meier (illustrator), Jihee Kim (designer), and their book, The Little Wahine!

The Little Wahine is a children's book about empowering courage, perseverance, and resilience to ride the waves of change. 

Wahine: The Hawaiian, Polynesian, and Maori word for woman.

The book is a series of powerful life lessons shared in rhyming poetry intended to facilitate self-reflection, dialogue, creativity, discussion, and action. Each life lesson begins with the sun reminding the little wahine of the power she possesses, and ends with the moon celebrating her journey. The Little Wahine gifts the reader with a series of life lessons learned through a relationship with life: Find Your Rhythm, Practice Self Love, Beauty Is In Your Breath, Love Your Journey, Knowledge Is Power, Bring People Together, Protect Mother Nature, and Celebrate Living. Each chapter has a creative space for self-reflection and expression for the reader to write, draw, and create.

Read The Little Wahine for free on Instagram @thelittlewahine. Fresh off their successful Kickstarter campaign, you can now order the book at The Little Wahine
