This children's storybook is a must have for your collection; it's the perfect tool for building self-esteem. Beautifully illustrated and vibrant, along with being visually captivating it has a valuable message to share: Your Curly Girl is Beautiful Just the Way She Is.
A POSITIVE AFFIRMATION ALL GIRLS NEED RIGHT FROM THE START.
Jamie is a school age girl who realizes that her hair is very different from her peers and what she sees in media leaving her to feel like somewhat of an outsider. However, she comes to accept her voluminous curls and appreciate her hair's beautifully unique qualities, leaving her with an overall better sense of self.
This book exceeded my expectations!!! It's one of my daughter's favorites and she tells people all of the time that she loves her natural hair. I just recently chopped all my hair off and have decided to keep it natural. This children's book has actually been an inspiration to me as well!
The story of Jamie Loves Her Natural Hair was inspired by news reports of children being told that their natural hair was "inappropriate" for school.
As a natural hair enthusiast, Roberts was appalled by these reports and decided that it was time to do something about it. She authored Jamie Loves Her Natural Hair to encourage curly girls to love their hair and themselves.
