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, but for an extra special occasion, she wants it to be PERFECT. When Daddy steps in to help her style it, he has a lot to learn. At first he's daunted by the task, and he even tries to convince her to wear a big woolen hat instead! 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.
"Harrison’s emotionally charged digital images of Zuri’s reactions match the exasperated girl’s spot-on utterances: when he desperately pulls a woolen hat over her head, she urges, 'We can do better than that' — and they do. With Zuri’s encouragement, her stylist nails it, fashioning 'funky puff buns' just in time for a rewarding apogee: Mommy’s return home. A bighearted ode to individuality and father-daughter collaboration." — Publishers Weekly
