Format: Board Book
Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 3
What did you like about the book? I like that the book encourages young girls to accept themselves as they are and love their curly hair. It shows them they can choose their own styles and shows them some options. Great pictures show a group of friends with different styles all happily accepting themselves for who they are.
Anything you did not like about the book? The message was great, but the words were sparse and confusing for little ones.
To whom would you recommend this book? Girls, ages 2-5
Who should buy this book? parents of girls with curly hair, especially if they seem to be fighting it rather than have fun with it
Where would you shelve it? Board books
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Not really, it has a limited appeal (girls with curly hair)
