Hair Love


It's up to Daddy to give his daughter an extra-special hair style in this ode to self-confidence and the love between fathers and daughters, from former NFL wide receiver Matthew A. Cherry and New York Times bestselling illustrator Vashti Harrison.

Zuri's hair has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Zuri knows it's beautiful. When Daddy steps in to style it for an extra special occasion, he has a lot to learn. But he LOVES his Zuri, and he'll do anything to make her -- and her hair -- happy.

Tender and empowering, Hair Love is an ode to loving your natural hair -- and a celebration of daddies and daughters everywhere.---from the publisher

Zuri has hair that kinks and coils and curls every which  way and lets her be her.  She can change her hair into poufs or braids to be a superhero or a princess depending on the day.

Then, one special day comes along and Zuri needs a very special hairstyle.  So Daddy volunteers to help.  He gives it a couple of tries and she gives him a couple of hard stares. Can he get it right?  Does he have the magic touch?

A lovely story about the very special love between a father and his daughter and the wonderful things that can happen inside a family.
