KEYNOTE A lively celebration of the pride and joy a young black girl feels for her hair and her heritage. DESCRIPTION Every night before she goes to bed, Keyana sits down between her mother's knees to have her hair combed. But no matter how gently Mama pulls, it sometimes still hurts! Keyana doesn't feel lucky to have such a head of hair, but Mama tells her she is because she can wear it any way she chooses. "I can spin you hair into fine, soft yam, just like our grandmothers did at their spinning wheels, " she tells her. "Or I can part your hair into straight lines and plant rows of braids along your scalp, the way we plant seeds in our garden, then wait and watch for them to grow." Natasha Tarpley's whimsical, evocative text encourages Black children to not only feel good about their special hair, but to also feel proud of their heritage. In his expressive watercolor illustrations, E.B. Lewis perfectly captures the characters of this simple story, as well as all of Keyana's imaginative hairstyles. First published in hardcover in 1998, and then in paperback in 2001, I Love My Hair has sold remarkably well, and proved that there was indeed a demand for African-American children's books. Now in board book to reach an even younger audience!

Synopsis:

A young African-American girl describes the different, wonderful ways she can wear her hair, in an empowering board book that encourages African-American children to not only feel good about their special hair, but to also feel proud of their heritage.

Synopsis:

Now in a board book format--the bestseller that encourages young black children to not only feel good about their special hair but to also feel proud of their heritage. Full color. 11 spreads. Baby/Preschool.
