The Hats We Wear

"The Hats We Wear" book is a multi-cultural hand illustrated book for children, tweens/preteens and adults. The sole purpose of this book is to educate people in a fun way and to spark the interest (especially in the children of our next generation) and share some history behind hats, headwear, head-dressings, scarves and caps.
"The Hats We Wear" touches on some of the history and traditions of hats and headdresses from various cultures, as well as the people who wear them. The intent is to help eliminate any prejudice and misconceptions about people, their lifestyles and beliefs. Understanding cultural differences here and abroad and why hats/headdresses are important to some people, will help others understand/respect the global traditions and beliefs associated. Consequently, this is not a book about how to wear hats. It's a book about people and their faith(s), tradition(s), honor, purpose, protection, understanding and tolerance, feeling good about oneself, confidence, (and if you choose) just making a fashion statement. It is important to be open-minded (without feeling the need to ridicule one another) about our differences. As it stands, hats have been both an object of ridicule and beauty throughout the ages. This book only touches on commonly-worn hats and scarves. Currently, there are thousands of hat styles and head dressings. As such, many are not represented in this book.
