GREAT book for talking about personal space. Lends itself well to discussions about other absurd requests like "can I touch your tummy?" for pregnant woman. As I read this book to my students in my library, I'll stop and ask one "can I stick my finger up your nose?" The shock value is hilarious and helps cement the ideas of personal space. Just keep your finger out of my nose and I'll keep my hands off your body too.
I didn't pay attention to content - my bad. One thing I am looking for is a guideline on book age appropriateness. I was looking for my 2 year old granddaughter. I'll keep the book for a later gift. I'd say 4 years and older. Meanwhile I'll keep looking. She hates people messing with her hair so I was hoping for something fun to bridge an understanding. Her hair is beautiful and wild, but sometimes we need to tame it for the day.
My daughter is 9 months old and absolutely LOVES this book. It is a little on the pricey side however, books like this aren't available in your typical book stores. My daughter loves the pictures and it most certainly will be a keepsake!
Since reading this book with my 3 year old, she has had the confidence to tell 4 adults not to touch her hair! We love this book! It teaches them about consent. I’ve told her many times what this book says, but I think seeing a little girl with hair like her, dealing with the same issue, helped it sink in.
I truly enjoy reading this book with my now 6 year old daughter. It is very important for her to have the language to communicate to others that her hair is not to be randomly touched, and this great book gives her the confidence and the courage to communicate that in an effective, non-disrespectful way. As parents we look for books for our children that have character's that reflect their everyday life and this book is a great example of that for all little brown skin girls.
My kids LOVE this book and so do I! We have her first book Princess Hair and they both are absolutely AMAZING!! My eldest rest it every night for 2 weeks straight! Great great book. Highly recommended!
My six year old has beautiful curly hair...and lots of anxiety. People would always reach out to touch her hair and she would shut down. I’ve been working with my kids on setting healthy boundaries -their body, their choice. All of my kids love this book, and it teaches children that even something people don’t think about such as touching their hair is not ok unless they give their permission. This book empowers children to decide when they do and don’t want contact. And that it isn’t wrong or impolite to ask someone not to touch you and expect that they respect that boundary. I will be ordering more of her books-for reference my kids are 6, 9, and 11-two girls and one boy-and they all enjoyed this book and the conversation it evoked.
