I Love My Hair!
I rediscovered this book while organizing boxes of books. Super cute book!!!! I got this after working at THE best summer camp ever. At the end of the summer each person who worked got a book that fit them from my boss (who by the way was amazzzing!). Being a super cheery morning person is something I've been actively working on for some time. Add high temperatures, along with about 15 young kids in an outdoor environment--lets just say I was NOT motivated to fool with my hair in any way ^ = ^" AFRO's and wash-n-go's ruled the summer!! Everyone I worked with left a message on a folded piece of construction paper. The tucked away paper was bittersweet. I was taken back to the summer of 2008--memories of all the great people I met came back to me. My hair was the subject of many convo's and wandering eyes, BUT my hair and I survived and I had a blast!! I Love My Hair, immediately makes me think of the Whip My Hair song by Miss Willow Smith. Both are very good motivators and positive messages to anyone who may think twice about wearing a big fro, how their hair looks, or what people think. Anyone with second/third thoughts, curiosity, or just a lover of good books should check this out~stay encouraged!
