This work is an undergraduate student honors thesis project, "Little Blue," a children's first chapter book (aimed at ages 9-11 years old) offering affirmations of worthiness. Purpose is to reach and affirm the experiences of children and readers with marginalized identities, since matrices of oppression manifest in everyday messaging that they are less than, invalid or unworthy in some way. "Little Blue" acts as a tool to get the conversation started on mental and emotional health at a young age.
