Is Baby really ready for that first haircut? With the usual panache, Leslie Patricelli's one-haired wonder leads the way into another new experience.

It's important to take care of your hair, even if you only have one! As Baby can tell you, that hair gets washed when it's dirty and brushed when it looks messy. But when it grows and grows, there's only one thing to do. This funny and reassuring look at a toddler rite of passage is ideal for little readers--especially those with a tiny bit of trepidation about that first haircut.

Author Notes

Leslie Patricelli is the creator of a series of best-selling board books starring her beloved (almost) bald baby as well as Higher! Higher!; Faster! Faster!; Be Quiet, Mike!; and two stories about the Patterson Puppies. She lives in Ketchum, Idaho.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The round-headed baby who has starred in Patricelli's Boo!, Hop! Hop! and numerous other board books has long been defined by the single, curly hair springing from its head. But what happens when that hair needs a trim? With the baby's hair now resembling a mangled car antenna, Mom whisks her child to a salon for kids, where the baby calmly submits to the experience ("I put on a funny cape and sit in an airplane!"), providing reassurance for kids whose hair may also be getting a little unruly. Patricelli's bold acrylics are as entertaining as ever in this warm and funny tribute to the messy everyday life of a tot. Up to age 3. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

School Library Journal Review

Baby-Toddler-Clad in just a diaper, a cartoon-style white baby declares, "I have a hair!" What follows is a tot-inspired tutorial on how to care for that one curl. Of course, all of that hair maintenance leads to-a haircut! "Will it hurt?" frets the concerned-looking tot, as a lone blue teardrop slides down a rosy cheek. "It did not hurt! Now my hair is just right." The last two pages feature a dozen different types of hair on a multiethnic cast of floating heads. Patricelli's vibrant art style is fully evident and on display here, with brightly hued acrylic paint backgrounds on each spread, chunky black outlines, and lots of smiles. VERDICT A reassuring title to introduce toddlers to their hair and the upkeep required. For early learning collections.-Lisa G. Kropp, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY © Copyright 2017.
