" This book is great for African-American girls who have "unmanageable" hair. it normalizes black children and their hair, which is something little girls need, especially in this society. I admired this book truly, because I was not always accepting of my natural hair. Now, I love it! But I didn't always. The book is unique in that it captures the importance of a little girl's hair by showing different types of hair styles that can be done to little girl's hair. " said.

" A wonderful story of acceptance for a very real important detail in the lives of young girls, their hair. This book shows the beauty in difference and can help girls to feel confident in themselves. The picture and text relationships that Natasha provides can really help to create a sense of identity and adventure for any girl that thinks their hair is more of a burden than a gift. Great read for young readers. (Seen as an ebook.) " said.

" LOVE the story as well as the illustrations throughout the book! " said.

" As the title of this book implies, it celebrates a little girl's hair. It touches on how she and her mom bond over the maintenance of her hair (even though it can hurt when her mom brushes it) and how she can wear it in a variety of styles. The afro has history behind it but she likes to wear it with beads and hear the beads clacking together. " said.

"Text-to-Self Connection:

This book reminds me of my childhood plenty. As a young girl my mother had to take care of my hair. Just like Keyana, my mother or grandmother would sit me between her legs as the moisturized my scalp and styled my hair. As a child I usually dreaded getting my hair done. At times it was unpleasant, especially if my hair was sometimes snagged while combing out tangled areas.

I love the how Keyana came to understand that her hair allowed so many diverse styles. As a child, I can remember asking my mother for a chemical relaxer which would have made my hair straight. She said it would ruin my hair and that I should enjoy the versatility of my hair texture because without chemically treating my hair I could wear it curly, poofy, braided or straight. That made me feel special, like I had the best of both worlds. From that day forward I appreciated and love my hair.
" said.

" wonderful book, a great way to have children look at the difference in hair and hairstyles,bring in mannequin heads and have the children pretend to be in the barbershop and hair salon and style the hair on the mannequins, the next day their can be a hair show, showcasing all the styles " said.

" I Love My Hair is the story of a young black girl who learns to find pride in her hair, even though it hurts sometimes when her mother combs it.This book was excellent at showing the different expressions and emotions that African American girls have in real life when it comes to their hair. It also connects to all children, teaching them to love who they are and where they come from. " said.
