Storytime at WORD JC with SHAREE MILLER

01/18/2020 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Start your Saturday with WORD JC AND picture book author SHAREE MILLER! Sharee will read from her two beloved picture books, Princess Hair and Don't Touch My Hair- and you'll even get a chance to do some drawing alongside her!
 

ABOUT THE BOOKS: 

DON'T TOUCH MY HAIR!
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.


PRINCESS HAIR
Princesses with curls wear pearls.
Princesses with head wraps take long naps.
And princesses with teeny-weeny Afros wear teeny-weeny bows.

Celebrate different hair shapes, textures, and styles in this self-affirming picture book! From dreadlocks to blowouts to braids, Princess Hair shines a spotlight on the beauty and diversity of black hair, showing young readers that every kind of hair is princess hair.
