“As a mother to children of mixed race, an entrepreneur and fellow writer, this book hits all of the points in teaching the important lessons while still making it fun. It’s so important to model to our children and to remind ourselves, the importance of inclusivity and kindness, especially with today’s climate surrounding the hair of people of color. Christine is the perfect author to help all of us learn these important truths with her first children’s book, ‘Braiding Crowns of Friendship’. It is truly a gem you’ll pull from the bookshelf for years to come.”
