Nailah Jones is a natural haired girl from Snellville, Georgia. After years of getting relaxers, she realized her natural hair better fit her identity and later decided to go back to her natural roots. She has now had locs for two years and counting. Nailah thinks that it is important to let other natural girls in her community know how beautiful their natural hair is, so they never have to wonder!
This picture book is perfect for my toddler. I wanted to introduce her to the concept of self-love at an early age, and encourage her to have a positive perception of her natural hair. The pictures are engaging and paired with sentences that are easy enough for her to follow along with. I highly recommend this book for any other parents looking to provide their young girls with positive representation!
