Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-3-The third installment of the series finds the eight-year-old kid barber headed to Atlanta to appear as a young social media star in a hair show. While he is nervous, he is guided by his mother and a variety of other mentors. This joyful beginning chapter book showcases and enthusiastically celebrates Black hair and hair culture by focusing on barbers and hairdressers and the serious work and artistry they bring to their trade. The book is full of black-and-white illustrations, some full page and some partial page, that capture the jubilance of the characters. The only drawback is a simplistic plot. There is no real conflict or moment when readers believe things won't turn out well for J. D. However, the book is full of humor and realistic kid moments, even in the middle of what feels like wish fulfillment of social media stardom and amazing experiences. VERDICT An upbeat and funny beginning chapter book celebrating Black hair culture, this is a whimsical addition to most libraries.-Elizabeth Nicolai, Anchorage P.L., AKα(c) Copyright 2011.

Praise for J.D. and the Great Barber Battle:

★"A surefire win of a read expressly made for young Black boys to cherish."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Dillard has a sharp ear for dialogue, and J.D.’s conversational narration paired with the story’s gentle humor and perfectly placed pop culture references will ensure a wide appeal. Akeem S. Roberts’ cartoon-style illustrations of J.D. and his friends are packed with personality and make this a great choice for readers transitioning into chapter books. The first book in a planned series, J.D. and the Great Barber Battle feels like a winner.” 
"The African American cultural references and community values will resonate with readers of all ages, while the joyful, wholesome story will give them something to look forward to in subsequent entries."
The Horn Book
