This is such a cute and silly book to show children that it is okay to be who you are. The creative ideas that Harriet's brother and sister come up with to get rid of the curls in Harriet's hair will be sure to get a giggle out of the young ones. A great book to help students become comfortable with who they are.
What a silly book! Harriet's braid just keep popping out curls while her brother and sister do ridiculous things to try and make them straighten out. CRAZY! In the end Harriet comes to peace with her curls and realizes she looks just fine. That's where the self-esteem lesson come in!
This book is a book about self-confidence and loving who you are. Harriet has crazy hair and she wants nothing less than to tame it. She tries everything, and everythings fails. But after a while Harriet realizes that its perfect just the way it is.
Great book about a girl whose curls are continuously popping out of her head. Each curl is counted and there are different ways that are attempted to put the curls back into place.
Very colorful and bright illustrations. I need my friend with naturally curly hair to read this book. ;)
I can't believe Harriet actually lets her brother and sister do the things they do to her in this story.
Funny book with great pictures.
