Hair Dance! – by Dinah Johnson & Kelly Johnson

Title: Hair Dance!

Author: Dinah Johnson & Kelly Johnson

Level: Pre-school to 4th grade

“Hair comes in all colors, textures and styles.  Whether it is cut long or short, in braids or cornrows, or left natural, it plays a big part in who we are and how we feel about ourselves.  Kelly Johnson’s stunning photographs of girls wearing a range ofHair Dance Review hairstyles, together with the lyrical words of Dinah Johnson’s poem, celebrate African American hair in all it’s radiant variety.”   Hair Dance

I love this book! For me, it’s a celebration of the many textures and styles of African American hair but expressed on a young girls’ level.  By the time we reach adulthood, most of us are pretty secure  in our skin and with the choices for our hair, but we really need to start at a young age helping little brown girls feel good about the hair that God blessed them to have.  The pictures and words in this book do just that!

I give this book 5 afro puffs out of 5
