When the stars shine, the world is mine! I am born to be awesome! My hair is free, just like me! I am born to be awesome!
Boys will love seeing strong, happy reflections of themselves in this vibrant, rhythmic picture book celebrating a diversity of hip black hairstyles. From a 'fro-hawk to mini-twists and crisp cornrows, adorable illustrations of boys with cool curls, waves, and afros grace each page, accompanied by a positive message that will make kids cheer. It's a great read-aloud to promote positive self-esteem to boys of all ages, building and growing the foundation of self-love (and hair love!) and letting every boy know that "You are born to be awesome!"
And look for the companion book for girls, Happy Hair.
"a timely mirror for black boyhood and childhood."—Kirkus
"Readers of this work will relate to the book’s positive language, such as the way the author frames self-esteem’s connection to pride in hairstyles and looking and feeling awesome."—Booklist
