Haywaas’ Question: What is Reconciliation?


How can you make sense of what’s going on when everyone gives you a different answer to the same question?

After Haywaas sees his parents get frustrated while watching the news, this precocious 12-year-old begins a months-long journey navigating many different answers to what he thought was a simple question.

Ages 9-16

Expertly crafted by a teacher-parent-author duo, Haywaas’ Question is relatable, understandable, and aptly builds up to an answer we’re all a part of.
