Reviews of The Hair Book

“Striking spreads include bold and eye-catching colors that celebrate the diversity of beauty.” — School Library Journal, Starred review

Combined simplistic shapes representing different hair make up the bright and bold pages of this book. The text names each do. I’m not sure poetic rhyme is an accurate description as each page ends with the word hair except the last page. The illustrations will hold a young child’s attention.
