Delighted to share a new book for children by Dawn Doig, illustrated by Savannah Horton – Hair Peace.
About the book
Johanita wants to have beautiful hair like the other girls at school. Johanita’s hair is very short. When her mother takes her to the hair salon, Johanita tries a series of wigs out each day at school, but she can’t decide which one makes her look beautiful.
After a new girl starts at school, Johanita discovers that beauty comes in many forms and it isn’t your hair that makes you beautiful.
One of the early reviews for the book
The story is centered around a girl of African descent who did not appreciate the beauty of her hair texture. Reminds me of growing up and how “chemically processed hair” was the way forward for many reasons ranging from being easier to manage to not liking the inability of my hair to flow in the breeze. In present times though more African descendants are now leaning towards embracing our hair textures and I am proud of that.
