Both books talked about a little Black girl getting her hair combed and how both were sometimes tender headed that means their scalp was sensitive in areas. She would sit and think about her hair and compare it to yarn, garden rows, or a planet out in space. Though the themes of baseball and classical music initially may seem a jarring juxtaposition, here the duet makes for lovely harmony. Lewis's (Creativity; Staying Cool) realistic watercolors take fanciful flight as parent and child describe what can be done with the girl's locks: braids at the top of Keyana's head become hoed rows of vegetables in a field behind her as Mama explains that she can ""plant rows of braids along your scalp, the way we plant seeds in our garden""; and, pictured against the night sky, the child's Afro-styled hair metamorphoses into an image of the earth as she notes that, when she lets it ""go any which-way it pleases,"" her hair surrounds her head ""like a globe. Keyana doesn't feel lucky to have such a head of hair--until Mama reminds her of all the lovely ways her wonderful hair can be fixed.

This book does a great job of illustrating and bringing alive the way the girl in the story styles her hair with her mom and her different options, especially for people that will never have the experience like myself. This sweet story is about a Back girl’s struggles with feeling confident and comfortable with her hair.
