As a photographer I love taking portraits of people with big hair, the curlier the better, and always find it a shame when black and mixed raced models straighten theirs (though I understand why they choose to do so from time to time.)
Mira doesn’t like her hair. It curls at the front. It curls at the back. It curls everywhere! She wants it to be straight and smooth, just like her Mama’s. But then something unpredictable happens…and Mira will never look at her Mama’s hair the same way again! A delightful celebration of natural hair and the courage it takes to be yourself.
A vibrant picture book about embracing natural beauty.
