About Say Their Names:

Say Their Names blends breathing and self-affirmation rituals while also acknowledging injustices suffered by people of color. Written by Charisse Sims, an educator, this book teaches children to manage their emotions though deep breaths, including breathing for those lost by racial violence and police brutality. 


About Charisse Sims:

Charisse A. Sims is an educator, coach, and mother, with over twenty years of experience in the classroom, and is the founder and director of an early childhood education center. Her expertise in working with children, parents and educators was maximized by the entrance of her six children – four girls and boy/girl twins. Charisse is also on the leading side of creating culturally relevant, diverse and inclusive curriculum, working with parents and educators of children of color to help create anti-racist and equal environments for children to thrive in. Also a children’s book publishing class teacher, she’s working to ensure that other books of representation are created and published. She finds ultimate joy, fulfillment, and personal growth in her ability to inform, inspire, and empower educators and families.
