hair today, gone tomorrow

Summary:
Every Saturday, Mom goes to the hair salon for her standing appointment … and every Saturday Daddy and his girl do some stylin' of their own. Each week, everyone has a different hairstyle.
Educational Themes:
There is lots to share, from creating your own rituals, to explaining how families work, and celebrating individuality and diversity.
Reading Level:
3.2
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 to 9
Recommended Age To Read Together:
4 to 8
Age of child:
Read with child 3½ years old.
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy! It's a paperback, so you won't likely find it at your library, and it will bring you at least a smile, if not a laugh, for many readings.
Little Kid Reaction:
S/He laughed at the pictures of Play-doh hair the first time. We didn't have much success trying to read it after the first round, though.
Big Kid Reaction:
The story makes you laugh out loud. Part of the fun is thinking about how some of the "hairless" guys you've known might look in some of these hairdos.
Pros:

The story is fun. It presents an inter-racial family in a way that just "is." There's no judgment, there's no in-your-face message, it's just a family that loves each other!

Cons:

None, unless you live in fear of having your child style your hair.
