Don't Touch My Hair!

by Sharee Miller - £6.99  Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780316562577 | ISBN 10: 0316562572

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.
