Princess stories don’t usually spark my interest, but Princess Hair is different. The girls in it feel good about their beauty as they celebrate their braids, curls, teeny-weeny afros, twists, and frohawks. Diverse in hairstyles and skin tones, these girls like to draw and twirl, think and rock. Every kind of hair is princess hair and is worth celebrating. A lot of little girls have been waiting for this book!
Celebrate black hair of different shapes, textures, and styles in this self-affirming board book!
Princesses with head wraps take long naps.
Princesses with curls wear pearls.
And princesses with teeny-weeny afros wear teeny-weeny bows.
Sharee Miller's board book celebrates different shapes, textures, and styles of black hair, from dreadlocks, to blowouts, to braids (and more!), shining a spotlight on the beauty and diversity of black hair with playful, colorful illustrations and an endearing text with great read-aloud quality.
