Overview

Whimsical yet honest, Nowhere Hair recently was one of only two books recommended by LIVESTRONG.org on the topic of talking to children (ages 3-12) about a parent's diagnosis. A vibrantly and poignantly illustrated book that focuses on explaining the loss of hair due to chemotherapy. It tells the story of a young girl who tries unsuccessfully to find her mother's missing hair, only to learn that medicine has made it fall out. She learns that she didn't cause the cancer, can't catch it, and that Mommy still is very much up for the job of mothering. The book, written in rhyme, explains hats, scarves, wigs, going bald in public, and the idea of being nice to people who may look a little different than you. It ends with the idea that what is inside of us is far more important than how we look on the outside. It's silly. And touching. And real. Mothers, teachers, grandmothers, aunties, and friends have used this book to find the words.
