    The most adorable book! I love the part where the little girl discusses the disadvantages of her Afro while playing hide-in-seek and the picture shows her hair a little higher than the bushes!

    Really sweetI really liked this book. I don't have children yet. But I was drawn to this book, because I have natural hair. This book will certainly be in my little girls library one day.

    I gave this book 4 stars based mostly on handling a topic pretty well. The text was just ok, had a nice flow, but I really wanted it to jump off the page more. The illustrations, while very cute, also felt flat and were repeated, which was a little weird.

  • Jillian Heise
    Though I like the idea of celebrating natural hair, and appreciate the positive black girl magic representation, the writing doesn't flow well and leans toward didactic. Enjoyed the illustrations though.
