Announcing the Winner of A Lion’s Mane


Thanks to everyone who entered our A Lion’s Mane giveaway, the multicultural and eco-friendly book for kids about the Sikh turban. The giveaway was made possible by Saffron Press-thanks to them as well. We are announcing the winner today in the spirit of the Sikh holiday Vaisakhi, when the turban became a symbol of the Sikh identity.


We loved reading all the responses of why you wanted to win the book from exposing your kids to other cultures, to walking to a different beat in your own family to wanting to expand multicultural resources in your own communities. If only we could give you all a copy!


We put every number of responses in a small box and picked one at random.


The winner is Jamie Wilson! Congratulations Jamie. We hope you like the book as much as we do. And Happy Vaisakhi to all!
