What is it that makes you so very special? What is the thing about you that no one else has..no one else in the whole world? This little baby starts out with no hair at all. That's pretty special. When she turns three years old, her hair sprouts..it doesn't just grow..it sprouts! She has a head full of curly, swirly hair. In fact, when she pulls her hair and lets it go, her hair sproings back. Is she happy? No she is not. This Curlee Girlee wants to have hair that grows "down her back like spaghetti."
Some people don't like their nose. Some people don't like their hair. Some people wish they were taller. Other people wish they were smaller. But what if every single person in the world was exactly the same size, the same color, with the same nose, the same hair..the same everything? That wouldn't be a very wonderful world.
Every child deserves to read Curlee Girlee. Every child deserves to know that other children have wished they could have straight hair or a smaller chin. Every child needs to discover that magical moment when they can see themselves as beautifully them... just as Curlee Girlee learns to see herself. Thank goodness we are different and special just the way we are.
