Hair Love
  • Hair Love

  • Matthew Cherry

    It's up to Daddy to give his daughter an extra-special hair style in this story of self-confidence and the love between fathers and daughters.

    Zuri knows her hair is beautiful, but it has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Mum always does Zuri's hair just the way she likes it - so 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.
