THE HAIR BOOK

Why I Love This Book
1. If you are looking for a simple book that can appeal to the youngest of children that can help convey the importance of diversity and inclusion – this is it! Studies show that infants respond to pictures of faces – and this is a book filled with faces!
2. Bold vivid illustrations of diverse people with many different styles of hair.
3. Ultra-simple sparse text.

  2. Even as a very young child, I was aware that my thick kinky/curly hair was different from all of my family members and friends. Learning to embrace these differences early on is so important. This is a wonderful message to impart to a young audience!
