I love My Hair

Author: Natasha Anastasia Tarpley

First line: Every night before I go to bed, Mama combs my hair.

Why you should read this book: Tender-headed Keyana sometimes cries when her mother combs her hair at night, but her mother reminds her about all the beautiful ways she can wear her hair until she feels proud of who she is. Beautiful, imaginative paintings illustrate the girl's hair being spun like wool, growing in rows like corn, and surrounding her head like the Earth. A lovely book, entertaining and warm even as it teaches tolerance and acceptance.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're bald.
