Happy With My Nappy (Own Voices, Own Stories)

We rated this book:


There is a growing trend of allowing students to wear their hair however they want to in school, and this book explores the many ways one young girl can wear her wear. Everyone’s hair is different and oftentimes the hairstyle one chooses tells a story about the culture you were raised in. This book explores African-American hairstyles as the young protagonist explores the many different ways she can wear her nappy hair, which is how it is called in the book.

The rhyme is a bit hit and miss. Sometimes it is easy enough for a young child to read on their own and other pages it is a bit more difficult and would require an adult to read to the child. The art is fairly engaging, but it ranges from dynamic and eye-popping to flat and not really adding much to the story. This book would be perfect for young kids to learn about other kids’ hairstyles and how each person has their own type of hair and there is no correct or one true hair style.
