“Striking spreads include bold and eye-catching colors that celebrate the diversity of beauty.” — School Library Journal, Starred review
This adorable pop art book is filled with bright colors and one-word descriptions of hair – all types of hair, even hair that is gone! The repetitive words are sure to intrigue the youngest readers. I love the design and how it introduces a wide variety of all hair types and colors. Each page is illustrated perfectly. There is something for every child to relate to in themselves and those they know or see.
