Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 2^-6. Like Rochelle's Jewels, reviewed above, this picture book is a celebration of African American identity. There is no real story, just an upbeat message about a young girl, Kenyana, who enjoys all the things she can do with her hair. Sometimes it hurts when her mother combs through the tangles, but it is great to wear it in braids with beads that tap and clack, or in two ponytails that stick out, or to let it surround her head like a globe, Afro style. As always, Lewis' watercolors are masterful, showing the child as part of a lively community, warm in her mother's embrace at home, her curls as thick as a forest or like a vine winding upward to reach the sky. --Hazel Rochman"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In I Love My Hair by Natasha Anastasia Tarpley, illus. by E.B. Lewis, the narrator loves the nightly ritual of her mother combing her hair (it is "thick as a forest, soft as cotton candy, and curly as a vine winding upward, reaching the sky." About the 1998 hardcover, PW said, "In this gracefully told story, a young African-American heroine celebrates her lovely head of hair as part of her heritage." (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
