Storytime PLUS: Hair Love
When mommy is away, it's up to daddy to do his daughter's hair in this ode to self-confidence and the love between fathers and daughters from former NFL wide receiver Matthew A. Cherry and New York Times bestseller Vashti Harrison. Zuri's hair has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Zuri knows it's beautiful. When mommy does Zuri's hair, she feels like a superhero. But when mommy is away, it's up to daddy to step in! And even though daddy has a lot to learn, he LOVES his Zuri. And he'll do anything to make her--and her hair--happy. Tender and empowering, Hair Love is an ode to loving your natural hair--and a celebration of daddies and daughters everywhere.
During Blue Baboon Books' Storytime PLUS events, we add a little something extra. It could be a game, a craft, or a snack. But it's always a surprise! These events are free, but we ask that you register your children so that we can make sure we have enough supplies for all the children who attend. You can register your kiddos at http://bit.ly/2uXWWdK.
Blue Baboon Books' storytimes are free, but we always appreciate your support as you build your children's home library.
"I love that Hair Love is highlighting the relationship between a Black father and daughter. Matthew leads the ranks of new creatives who are telling unique stories of the Black experience. We need this."
