Hair Love

  • Title: Hair Love
  • Author: Matthew A. Cherry
  • Illustrator: Vashti Harrison
  • Publisher: Kokila, an imprint of Penguin Random House
  • Publication year: 2019
  • Brief Summary: From Penguin Random House-“Zuri’s hair has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Zuri knows it’s beautiful. When Daddy steps in to style it for an extra special occasion, he has a lot to learn. But he LOVES his Zuri, and he’ll do anything to make her — and her hair — happy.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I learned through some research that there is also a short film associated with this book. Here is a short accompanying PDF to help children understand the film and the book.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it. –I think my favorite set of illustrations are the small illustrations of the dad helping Zuri with her hair and each time managing an outrageous style.
