So, Bookworms… I have something different for you today. Most of my book reviews have been Adult, YA, and NA in various fictional genres. Today we will be venturing into a children’s picture book!
Bald Is Beautiful: A Letter For a Fabulous Girl is written by Carola Schmidt and illustrated by Dian Ovieta. It gives support to little girls who are going or already have gone bald due to illness, genetics, etc. It’s a love letter of support in the simplest forms of a picture book. It doesn’t hit you with words that are hard to understand but rather uplifts you into understanding you aren’t any different from anyone else and you deserve the same things that everyone else does.
“Maybe you’ll read it again and remember you were always as beautiful as you are now.”Bald Is Beautiful: A Letter For a Fabulous Girl
There isn’t any shame in being bald. Unfortunately, one too many people have something negative to say about others (male and female) for being bald.
Bald is Beautiful might be a letter for a fabulous girl but it could, in my opinion, also be a letter for a fabulous woman.
Have you read this picture book? What is your favorite picture book for little girls or boys going through difficult times in their life?
