Don't Touch My Hair!
Don't Touch My Hair! | Sharee Miller
2 posts | 2 read | 3 to read
An entertaining picture book that teaches the importance of asking for permission first as a young girl attempts to escape the curious hands that want to touch her hair. It seems that wherever Aria goes, someone wants to touch her hair. In the street, strangers reach for her fluffy curls; and even under the sea, in the jungle, and in space, she's chased by a mermaid, monkeys, and poked by aliens...until, finally, Aria has had enough!Author-illustrator Sharee Miller takes the tradition of appreciation of black hair to a new, fresh, level as she doesn't seek to convince or remind young readers that their curls are beautiful--she simply acknowledges black beauty while telling a fun, imaginative story.

Pickpick

Aria loves her hair: “It‘s soft and bouncy and grows up toward the sun like a sunflower.” But she does not like people touching it without permission. As she tried to escape the hands in her hair she even goes into the ocean and a jungle for peace. Finding none, she tells everyone, “Don‘t touch my hair!”

This fun and silly story carries a firm message: Don‘t. Touch. The. Hair. And, it‘s okay to say, “No.”

I want to start reading my new books but today is hair day! And the struggle is real! This is going to take hours because I‘m taking braids down, deep conditioning! 😩😩😩 I love my hair though but I want to start my new book. It‘s an ARC I‘ve had a while! Hopefully I can later!

JSW Hang in there!!! 😘 1y

WhatDeeReads I have frequently had to choose between finish this book or wash and style my hair. It‘s a struggle. I feel your pain. I also want to buy the tagged book for my niece. (edited) 1y

RaimeyGallant I started audiobooking two days ago and I'm hooked. Maybe you would enjoy it at times like this? 1y
TheNextBook @CouronneDhiver I am exhausted!!!! But at least I have some of the day left. I plan on starting soon after I take a breather. 1y
TheNextBook @RaimeyGallant I still haven‘t gotten in to audiobooks yet and I feel like I should give it a shot. On hair days I end up watching a show on my phone 1y
RaimeyGallant Try Libby to start, because you can get free ones from your library through it. That's what I'm doing. (edited) 1y
