My Hair Grows Like A Tree by Tamika Phillip
Published by Books of Africa, 2016
A children's book about hair that is fun for young readers.It is a book that sparks discussions between parents and children about their afro textured hair and what makes it special. It's not just about hair though. It really gets kids thinking about their hair and their skin and how they can relate to the shapes, colours and textures of things present in nature. Questions on each page will get the reader to go to libraries, museums and the Internet to search for more. Families of all backgrounds can discuss the differences in their hair and in the hair of others. It is recommended for teachers who wish to discuss other cultures and people's different physical characteristics.
