¿Hattie Get A Haircut¿ is a funny, poetic account of a child¿s lack of desire to get her first haircut. Hattie decides that eating broccoli and wearing ugly shoes is far better than getting a hair cut. Before going to bed she wished that it would grow down to her feet. Her dream takes her on a journey of forever growing hair. When she awakens, she has a hard decision to make: To cut or not to cut! The illustrations are lively and whimsical. The watercolor drawings flow on the pages gently enough to create an airy, dreamy effect. Overall, this book is a winner because it creatively tackles an issue that all parents must help their little ones overcome. Reviewed by: Makasha Dorsey Black Butterfly Review
Jenna Glatzer truly understands how a little girl loves her own hair. Glatzer weaves a whimzical story of Hattie's fear of losing part of her identity. In the end, Hattie looks beyond herself and thinks of others. Illustrations are wonderful by Monica Kendall.
Here is a story book that children will plead to be read over and over. It is about a little girl named Hattie. Hattie has never had her hair cut before. Her hair is getting very long. Hattie's mom said that she would take Hattie to get her hair cut the next day. But Hattie did not want to go. .................... Hattie goes to sleep. When she wakes up her mother takes her to the beauty shop. Hattie rebels and runs out the door. Suddenly, Hattie's hair begins to magically grow quickly. Hattie learns how irritating, and sometimes dangerous, hair too long can be. ................... The tale is beautifully illustrated in vivid colors. Keep an eye on Hattie's teddy bear. Your child will enjoy watching the bear's face mimic Hattie's. Kids will love seeing animals do things with Hattie's long tresses, such as the bird building a nest in it. .................... ***** This book is also perfect to help children build their reading skills. Simple words, easy to read, and amusing to all readers. Highly recommended! *****
