"A very special book about self-acceptance."
"Wonderful watercolor illustrations complete this sensitive, sweet story of learning to love yourself without compromise."
"A celebration of African American identity...Lewis's watercolors are masterful."
"[A] gracefully told story. Lewis's realistic watercolors take fanciful flight. Together, author and artist impart a reassuring message for all children about the importance of appreciating what they look like as part of who they are."

This book is much needed for little Black girls, not just here in the UK, but worldwide as it is a rare book which teaches self-acceptance through images as well as words.
I particularly find it useful as she is growing up with images and representations of herself that she can understand. At 22 months old now, she opens the book, points to the hair and says, "Mummy, haaair!" The image looks like her and definately looks like me when I'm trying to keep her still whilst combing and braiding!
No matter how young or old the child is, this book is an essential for the Afro Caribbean/European youth. Positive and realistic images of themselves and their traditions are few and far between, so this is a welcome must have.
If your looking at this book don't think twice you'll have no regrets what so ever.
