    Enjoyed the detailed and beautiful color illustrations. The storyline will remind some readers of the times when their own mothers combed and oiled their hair or just combed and brushed their hair. A beautiful story to share with young members of your family and discuss traditions of styling hair at home. *Good for a self-esteem class or session for six to nine year old youth and they will probably be drawn to the color illustrations in this picture book.

    I love my hair too

    This book is a beautifully written reminder to black women and their daughters about the wonder that is their hair. Cornrows, single braids with beads, puffs and fros, we all remember feeling like Keyana. I keep this book as a reminder to myself that the way my hair comes out of my head is exactly right. I do not need a relaxer or weave to make me beautiful. My hair is beautiful the way it occurs naturally. I share this story with my niece whenever she is over and she is always so excited by the beauty of her hair when we are finished. Great, great read. aAmust have for all little curly and kinky haired girls as well as their parents.

    A Good Way To Put It

    A wonderful story about a little girl named Kenyana who is kind of tenderheaded. Her mom gets her mind off the pain by telling her that her hair is beautiful and imagine it being all of these great things.While reading this book all of these memories came back of when my mom used to braid my hair and how I used to move and cry.I thought the book was a brillant idea and the pictures were fantastic.Its a great book for kids especially little girls.

    Hairs where it's at!

    Keyana's admiration for her hair, leads us on a journey through her mind, letting us see the repect she has for her hair. Keyana emphasizes the value that her hair has to her and allows us to see her her admiration her her roots. She also let us see how she views her hair as being an important aspect of her life and heritage. I consider this to be a good book for children because it teaches them to be proud of themselves, and thier heritage.
