This book has brought back my childhood memories of getting my hair done, and watching my sisters scream and cry when it was time to detangle their hair. This book is based on an African American girl named Tisa and her trial and tribulations of having tightly coiled, long natural hair. She avoids getting her hair done on Monday mornings, but in the end she will learn it is worth it. This book is very postitive in helping to boost little girls self esteem. It is an enjoyable easy to read book with rhyming words.
