Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry; illustrated by Vashti Harrison. 2019. Art is digitally created. Published by Kokila.
Brief summary: Zuri wants a special hairstyle for a special day and tries several with the help of her loving father until he finds one she likes. Her mom arrives home in time to see the final creation in which they take a selfie together to remember.
Comments: Cute and whimsical story of how a father does not give up with getting his little girl’s hair the way she wants it. I personally can’t remember when my father ever did that!
I would read this and other hair picture books (A Mighty Girl has a good list: I Love My Hair: 18 Books About Mighty Girls and Their Hair)and pair them with Rapunzel and variants of the fairy tale from other countries.
