This is a wonderful celebration about a father and daughter's relationship with each other -- and her hair. Hair Love explores a dynamic that isn't oft-depicted in children's books: the dad being the sole guardian of his daughter's care (and hairstyles) while the mom is out of town. Bright, colorful illustrations lovingly capture the joy and confidence of childhood from the point-of-view of a spritely African American girl and her devoted father.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
