50+ Diverse Children’s Books to Celebrate Curly Hair
My own hair is fine, uber-straight and incapable of holding any kind of curl or kink. So drawing curls was the closest I got. And photographing Barbies for BlackHair magazine. But not everyone who is capable of curls wears their hair curly. If you think your child might be a naturalista who would like to wear their hair in a natural afro then a book featuring BIG HAIR might guide their journey.
My oldest daughter, then five years old, was going to have a sister. She already had a baby brother, but a sister- all I can say is excited does not even begin to describe her state of mind! My amazing baby girl began to grow, as her siblings, hitting most of her milestones on target. Except for one thing; at two years old, while all her friends were starting to sprout lots of hair, she still had just a small amount of peach fuzz. Fast forward six months and everyone at her music class was wearing braids, ponytails, headbands, even the little boys seemed to have hair.
One of my favorite ways to teach my children is through reading stories. In the forward, Mechal Renee Roe dedicated her book to every girl who has ever doubted her beauty, strength, and her courageous spirit. Release her!
Curly hair. In high school and college, I loved my wavy-curly hair. Then my hair started changing again. It started getting frizzy, messy, not quite straight, not quite wavy, not quite curly, and baby-fine. The method is shortened to CGM, to be more inclusive. If you also possess hair that does not like to be told what to do, these books will provide some guidance in hair care.
