Synopsis

My Hair Curls by Sheryl Richards

My Hair Curls is a colourful, vibrant, and interactive picture book about a girl named Angeline expressing her love for her natural curly hair. Angeline is a British-born little girl of third generation African Caribbean heritage. She lives with her mother, father, and her little brother, George. Written from Angeline's point of view, My Hair Curls features Angeline rhythmically narrating her way through the book. She begins by introducing herself and stating: My hair curls. She then goes on to introduce her friend Parveen after describing the length, colour and texture of her hair. Again, she states: My hair curls. This pattern continues as she introduces her friends Tommy and Charlotte, who each have different types of hair. The story comes to an end with a congregation of Angeline's friends saying: Our hair curls and we like it, followed by Angeline affirming her love for her hair with: My hair curls and I love it. My Hair Curls promotes and celebrates diversity. It allows readers aged 1+ to develop positive self-awareness through reflective questions that complement the playful nature of the story.
