Commenting on the inspiration behind the book and why it was an important project for the company, the Co-founder of Kunda Kids, Mrs. Louisa Olafuyi, noted that “Children should be encouraged to embrace their culture, which positively impacts how they see themselves and embrace others too. For example, Sarai’s Culture Day shows parents and teachers how to do this by connecting through cultural items such as music, fashion, food and history. The ground-breaking children’s book also touches on soft critical skills such as kindness, advocacy, self-acceptance and anti-bullying.”
The author of ‘Sarai’s Culture Day’ Tania Omotayo has advised young people to know that their originality is their superpower, noting that Sarai’s cultural Day’ is inspired by her three-year-old daughter, Sarai.
Omotayo added, “I want young people to understand that they are uniquely perfect just the way they are, irrespective of race, religion and culture. “Always be proud of where you come from; there can only ever be one you!”
