Book title: Santana’s bad hair day
Author and Illustrator: Steven Bryant
What a darling story about Santana and her (alien) friend, Milo. Santana is a cute 8-year-old girl. Milo is a one eye, floating, bouncy friend. Wishing for a change, Milo helps her to explore other hair types. Soon she discovers that she is not like the others and must embrace her own hair. This is a perfect story for any little girl wanting or wishing to change themselves, even if just for a day. What I love most about the story, besides the perfect message of self-acceptance, is the beautifully, brightly colored illustrations (sneak peek below). I was mesmerized by every background and the color of the carefully chosen fonts. I also appreciated the warm dedication, the author wrote acknowledging his support group. My 9-year-old daughter read it too and she loved the illustrations as well. She said and I quote, “I thought it was an exciting kid story that reminded kids to just be themselves.” Looking forward to the new book, Amari and Rio. You too can enjoy Santana's Bad Hair Day by purchasing a copy on Amazon.
