Hair Dance!

Dinah Johnson; Kelly Johnson, contributor

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Hair comes in all colors, textures, and styles. Whether it is worn long or short, in braids or cornrows, or left natural in an Afro, hair plays a big part in who we are and how we feel about ourselves. In this inspiring book, Kelly Johnson’s stunning photographs of girls wearing a range of hairstyles and the lyrical words of Dinah Johnson’s poem celebrate African American hair in all its radiant variety. Hair Dance! is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
