Melissa Parkington's Beautiful, Beautiful Hair

"Spectacular!" "Gorgeous!" "Fabulous!" Those are some of the words people use to describe Melissa Parkington's hair, which is long, thick, and so shiny that it seems to sparkle. But Melissa would like to be known for more than her hair. Melissa wants to do something spectacular. But everything she tries doesn't seem to work out. Then one day she discovers that she can do something special - with her hair. Pat Brisson's engaging and thought-provoking story features lively illustrations by Suzanne Bloom.

"This book, tells the story of Melissa and her desire to be noticed for something other than her beautiful, flowing hair. Instead, Melissa wants to be noticed for something she did, and she wants this something to be spectacular. After trying basketball and art, Melissa realizes she is spectacular at being kind. In the end, she finds a way to demonstrate this kindness by donating most of her beautiful flowing hair to kids who need wigs." -- Library Media Connection
