Reviews

"This gorgeous book is about more than hair. Hair becomes the vehicle for a conversation about identity, beauty standards, bias, relationships, self-love, and more. Ramos has created a picture book that touches upon identity as it is intertwined with other elements of life, all by celebrating hair types and styles." ―Lorena Germán, Co-Founder of the Multicultural Classroom, as well as Co-Founder of #DisruptTexts, and Chair of NCTE's Committee Against Racism and Bias in the Teaching of English.
