A Sikh father and daughter with a special hair bond proudly celebrate and share a family tradition in this charming story perfect for fans of Hair Love and I Love My Hair!
Every morning Papa combs through his daughter’s waves like he does his own—parting it down the middle, using coconut oil to get all the tangles out.
Some days he braids her hair in two twists down the side of her face. Other days he weaves it into one long braid hanging down her back, just like a unicorn tail. But her favorite style is when he combs her hair in a tight bun on the top of her head, just like the joora he wears every day under his turban. They call this their hair twin look!
I absolutely loved this book! First of all it taught me something I didn’t know. I had no idea that the Sikh didn’t ever cut their hair! I think that is pretty awesome. I also didn’t know that all that hair was stored under their turbans!! I think it’s absolutely amazing to learn cool things from kids books! The story is a wonderful tale of a father and his daughter. The father helps his daughter do get hair each and every day. And some days they are even wearing the same Do!! The illustrations are phenomenal!
