Happy Hair

Happy Hair by Mechal Renee Roe (2014) #ownvoices

A joyful, unapologetic celebration of black hair styles, the message of this title is universal and should be a no-brainer to add to storytime everywhere. Intended to be read as a call-and-response, the rhyming text invites readers to shout, “I love being me” with each verse. I love this one!

Themes/topics:  hair, girl power, self-esteem, fashion,

Sample text:
Cool vibes, accessorize! “I love being me”
[word bubble] Pattern wrap!

Loved and free! “I love being me”
[word bubble] Wash-n-go!

Pom-pom puffs—Pretty and stuff “I love being me!”
[word bubble] Pom-pom puffs!
