Review:

Praise for I Love My Haircut! (formerly titled Bippity Bop Barbershop):
"The light-dappled watercolor paintings give the scenes a real sense of place while bringing the characters to life through a sensitive depiction of expressions, gestures, and body language. A child-centered story, well paced and beautifully illustrated."―Booklist, starred review

"What Natasha Anastasia Tarpley did for the mother-daughter bond in I Love My Hair! she now does for father and son..."―Publishers Weekly

"Tarpley's I Love My Hair! celebrates the positive self-image and cultural identity of African-American girls, and [this book] does the same for boys... Lewis's delightfully fluid watercolor illustrations get everything just right. The book is filled with cheerful and loving scenes of home and community..."―School Library Journal

Praise for I Love My Hair!:
"In this gracefully told story, a young African-American heroine celebrates her lovely head of hair as part of her heritage."―Publishers Weekly

"A very special book about self-acceptance."―School Library Journal

"This picture book is a celebration of African American identity."―Booklist

"Lewis's imaginative and warm interpretations of these exchanges as well as the inclusion of bits of African-American cultural history expand the personal content."―Kirkus
