Book of the Week / I Don't Want Curly Hair

You guys. Today's picture book of the week is absolutely delightful. And I'm utterly in love with it 💛

It's called I Don't Want Curly Hair by Laura Ellen Anderson. 

Laura's illustrations are so full of character and charm. I honestly can't stop looking at them!

And the way she draws that curly hair is just SO beautiful.

I mean look at it. 

That hair is full of character!

The little girl in the story does NOT want big curly hair. She tries to banish it using various methods from brushes to piles of books to tying balloons to it.

Of course none of them work, but it's so funny to watch her try.

She meets a girl with the smoothest, silkiest, straight hair, and of course all she's ever wanted is the exact opposite - big beautiful curls!

And the ending is so sweet 💛

It's the perfect picture book for little people who always want what they can't have - and helps them learn to love what they do have. 

The kids adore this book. And we're all agreed that the big curly haired girl in this book reminds us of Martha, who also has wild untameable curly hair!

It's such a charming book that is full of beautifully illustrated fun and inspiration.
