★ ”Thomas’ illustrations are as fresh as the girl’s new look, pulling in vibrant colors and a graffiti-mural style…[T]his book is perfect for kids learning about self-expression, confidence, and decision-making, and the energetic illustrations and humorous story line provide a great reading experience for any child, whether they are familiar with barbershops or not.” —Booklist, starred review”

The bouncing rhyme makes it an ideal storytime selection. The dynamic illustrations effortlessly match the text’s energy…his sweet ode to both Black hair and individual choice is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.” —BCCB Reviews
