  About The Book

In this companion to the top-selling I Love My Hair! (originally titled Bippity Bop, Barbershop), a young boy named Miles makes his first trip to the barbershop with his father--but he's afraid that the haircut will hurt! With the support of his dad, the barber, and the other men in the barbershop, Miles bravely sits through his first haircut. In the end, Miles's father even decides to receive the same haircut as Miles! Now in board book format, here is a much-needed story about a milestone moment for toddlers, featuring African-American characters and a loving father-son relationship that is perfect for Father's Day and all year round.


Praise for I Love My Haircut! (formerly titled Bippity Bop Barbershop):

"The light-dappled watercolor paintings give the scenes a real sense of place while bringing the characters to life through a sensitive depiction of expressions, gestures, and body language. A child-centered story, well paced and beautifully illustrated." Booklist, starred review

"What Natasha Anastasia Tarpley did for the mother-daughter bond in I Love My Hair! she now does for father and son..." Publishers Weekly
