I Love My Beautiful Hair

Publisher: Scholastic

Little EJ is so excited to join her mum and grandma for her first ever trip to the hairdressers. She wants to find a special hair style that is just right, but there are so many options, she struggles to choose. She imagines herself in a variety of styles. Should she try afro puffs, with ribbons and bows? Or twisty spirals that tickle her nose? Luckily, Mummy is there to remind her that her hair is beautiful and will look great no matter the style.

This delightful board book is an ode to natural black hair and a celebration of its beauty and versatility. Littles ones will love 'trying on' hair styles alongside EJ and may recognise hairstyles they've had themselves or would like to try in the future.

With bright, cartoon-like illustrations and sweet rhyming text, this book is a great way to celebrate black hair and family tradition with little ones.
