Most children’s hockey books don’t feature diverse characters. So as part of its hockey for all platform, we worked with Scotiabank to create The Hockey Jersey, a new hockey book to help more kids see themselves in the game. The Hockey Jersey is the story of a young girl named Kareema taking a big step into the locker room and into the world of hockey. As she meets her team, Kareema will realize something unique about the game of hockey as her biggest fans cheer on. We worked with author Jael Richardson and illustrator Chelsea Charles to create a story featuring a diverse case that resonates with children from all walks of life.
