This is another incredibly sweet and inclusive board book in the set of 3, made by Little Feminist. I love the way this book celebrates all different types of hair, and even no hair! The photos used are so diverse, and I love the celebratory language about different styles of wearing hair (like locs) or even covering hair (like wearing a hijab). A photo that I think can open up a lot of discussion is one of a child in a pink shirt that has some hair on their back, something that people (and especially women) are shamed for having. We need more role models that are unashamed and celebrate their bodies, hair and all.
We were very kindly sent this book, and we still have our Little Feminist Book Club discount code (THETINYACTIVIST) for 15% off! The code works for anything except gift cards, and this wonderful small business sells book subscription boxes, individual books, and some really neat shirts.
