Realizing there weren’t many resources for young children to learn about Standing Rock and the Dakota Pipeline controversy, both Aslan and his mother begin to write his book. His mother assisted with typing and grammar checking, but the content is all Aslan’s. It’s a great resource for young children to refer to as it is written from the perspective of a child. The book became available for purchase on August 8th.
