A warm, rhyming celebration of Afro hair and father-daughter relationships, from hair care coach and author T?lá Okogwu
It’s Sunday evening and dinner is over. Beth is excited and heads to the sofa. Daddy is there with a smile and a chair. “Daddy,” she asks, “will you please do my hair?”
It’s the evening before School Picture Day and Beth would like a brand new hairdo! Join Daddy and Beth on a wonderful hair adventure in this heart-warming depiction of the quality time spent between parent and child.
This joyful rhyming text is paired with bold and beautiful illustrations from Chanté Timothy (Hey You! by Dapo Adeola).
