An easy reader about hair--and all the things you can do with it--that's perfect for fans of classic Dr. Seuss concept books like The Foot Book and The Eye Book !

This super-simple, rhymed riff features a charming cast of human and animal characters sporting all kinds of hair--short, long, curly, straight, dark, fair, braided, tied, washed, dyed--you name it! Written for children learning to read on their own, it's filled with words and concepts kids encounter every day. Perfect for reading aloud or reading alone, it's also great for starting discussions about which kinds of animals have hair and which do not. With bright, energetic artwork by Andrew Joyner, this is the kind of fun, easy reader that is hard for kids to put down!
