Hair Story

By NoNieqa Ramos
Illustrated by Keisha Morris

A celebration of natural Black and Latinx hair, written in rhythmic, rhyming verse.

With rhythmic, rhyming verse, this picture book follows a Boriqua girl and a Black girl from birth through early childhood, culminating in a play date that is a celebration of natural hair for both the girls and their mothers.

  • Intersectional look at natural hair that stands out from other picture books focused on only Black hair
  • #ownvoices
  • Story takes place in a distinctly urban setting
