My Hair

by Hannah Lee (Author) Allen Fatimaharan (Illustrator)

My Hair
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

Join one little girl's search for the BEST party hair - as demonstrated by her family and friends.

Will it be dreads or a twist out? Braids or a high-top fade? Joyous and vibrant, this captures perfectly the excitement of getting ready for a celebration, as well as showcasing a dazzling array of intricate hairstyles.

This is a glorious debut from an exciting new partnership who both emerged from the FAB Prize for undiscovered BAME writers and illustrators.


Kirkus Reviews

On par with other books on the subject, this celebration of black hair, culture, and community is one to share. (Picture book. 3-8)
