This relatable story from award-winning author-illustrator Hyewon Yum explores the universal fear of first haircuts with honesty, tenderness, and humor
Little lion needs a haircut. But he doesn’t want one!
Is he worried? No.
Is he scared? NO!
He just likes his hair the way it is. R-O-A-R!
But there’s someone else who needs a haircut, too . . . it’s Dad, and he doesn’t want one, either!
Maybe if they go to the barbershop together, there will be nothing to worry about.
