"I love that Hair Love is highlighting the relationship between a Black father and daughter. Matthew leads the ranks of new creatives who are telling unique stories of the Black experience. We need this."
     - Jordan Peele, Actor & Filmmaker

It's up to Daddy to give his daughter an extra-special hair style in this ode to self-confidence and the love between fathers and daughters, from former NFL wide receiver Matthew A. Cherry and New York Times bestselling illustrator Vashti Harrison.


Zuri's hair has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Zuri knows it's beautiful. When Daddy steps in to style it for an extra special occasion, he has a lot to learn. But he LOVES his Zuri, and he'll do anything to make her -- and her hair -- happy.

Tender and empowering, Hair Love is an ode to loving your natural hair -- and a celebration of daddies and daughters everywhere.

This book makes my heart sing. I love everything about it from the illustrations to Dad's determination to get Zuri's 'do just right to Zuri saying "I love that my hair lets me be me". So happy to have this in our library's collection!

This adorable picture book just makes my heart happy! Zuri has gorgeous natural hair, and a hardworking dad who likes to put her hair in braids, puffs and twists. But Zuri wants something special. Daddy tries and tries and tries again until they finally come up with something that makes her feel special. The illustrations are high quality and super cute, and the warmth and nurturing connection between a little black girl and her daddy is so well executed. A big yes for daddy storytime!

The page in which Zuri says, "Daddy, really?" is my definite favorite. The illustrations and message are great!
