I Love My Hair
Every night before she goes to bed, Keyana sits down between her mother's knees to have her hair combed. This whimsical, evocative story encourages African-American children to feel good about their special hair and be proud of their heritage. Keyana's mother lovingly combs out her tangles before bed and, when it hurts, Mama assures her that she is very lucky to have such hair 'because it's beautiful and you can wear it in any style you choose.'
