Based on the Oscar-winning short film of the same name, Hair Love is a picture book about love, family and natural hair.
Little Zuri loves her hair, with all its kinks and curls, and wants to do something extra-special with it. Thankfully, Dad is right there with her, hairbrush at hand, primed to make her hair dreams come true!
It’s rare to see fathers and daughters children’s books bonding in over tasks that are traditionally allocated to Mum. Hair Love portrays a side of parent-child relationships that are seldom seen in picture books, all while celebrating natural hair in all its glory.
