Review Copy from Simon & Schuster
"Shine big hair love"! With ebullient poetics and glowing illustrations, Ruth Forman and Geneva Bowers bring a celebration of Black Joy to the page. This ode to curls captures their many moods, from "up soft black brown," and "thick curl sun crown," to braids, beads and smooth grease. Bowers's illustrations radiate self-love, showing the many kinds of big hair love expressed by the girls and women. I especially appreciate the board book format of Curls, which means these foundational messages of beauty, self-love and joy can be shared with the littlest listeners.
