A boy dreams of long hair in this sweet story about self-expression and embracing our most authentic selves
Noah has a special day coming up, and he has a very long wish list. But there’s one thing missing from it, the thing he wants more than anything else in the world: long, beautiful, wavy hair.
Noah understands that his hair will grow if he just doesn’t get a haircut. But almost all the boys that Noah knows have short hair, and he’s heard people say mean things about men with long hair. So, he just doesn’t think he’s allowed to ask.
When a fresh trim brings Noah to his lowest point, it turns out his caring family has been paying closer attention than he thinks—and they have an idea that will show Noah it’s okay to be his gorgeous self.
This heartfelt, witty, encouraging story from Christian Trimmer and J Yang will empower kids to share their true selves with the world.
