Princess Hair by Sharee Miller




Back of Book:


Celebrate different hair shapes, textures, and styles in this self-affirming picture book! From dreadlocks to blowouts to braids, Princess Hair shines a spotlight on the beauty and diversity of black hair, showing young readers that every kind of hair is princess hair.


My Review:


I may possibly have done a happy dance when I spotted this book at my Barns and Noble. I think this story is unique and discusses the importance of hair esteem.  Each page discusses a different type of hair that African American girls may have. The text in written in a rhyming pattern which is easy for young readers to decode. The illustrations are lovely. and depict girls with several different hair styles. I think this book is a perfect addition to any diverse library.  Sharee Miller did a wonderful job of making sure that all hair types were included. I believe this is one of the best books of 2017.
