Hair Love, by Matthew A. Cherry
It's up to Daddy to give his daughter an extra-special hair style in this ode to self-confidence and the love between fathers and daughters. Zuri's hair has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. When Daddy steps in to style it for an extra special occasion, he has a lot to learn. But he loves his Zuri, and he'll do anything to make her—and her hair—happy.
