Hats for Hailey is a story about a young girl with extraordinarily beautiful hair. Because of an illness, or rather the treatment for her illness, she loses her gorgeous hair. Hailey must gather the courage to return to school and see her friends once again, but without any hair. See how Hailey faces these challenges. The story tells the reader how her class comes together to help her adjust and make her feel welcome and included. Meanwhile, her brother and sister, who are twins, devise a plan to get her hair back. This is a story about courage and kindness. It is also about caring about those going through a difficult time.


Marytė Running is a Canadian author who resides in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. She spends and enjoys the short Canadian summers nearby on St. Joseph Island, on Lake Huron. Marytė was born in England but through her ancestry, still has strong ties to Kilbehenny, Ireland and Ukmergė, Lithuania. Her stories are inspired by and written for her two grandchildren Elaina (Lainey) and Gavin Paciocco.

Hats For Hailey is illustrated by Kevin George.
