NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 24

Wally Does Not Want a Haircut by Amanda Driscoll. 
July 2016. 32 pages.

From Amazon: "A bright barnyard tale about facing your fears (and a pair of shears), and learning that a hug from your mama can make just about anything seem possible. Wally does not need a haircut. His hair is perfectly fine. Sure, it trips him up a tad and gathers a bit of greenery. But Wally does NOT want a haircut. He doesn’t even want one after his mama and their barnyard friends show off their own fun new ’dos. But when his unruly hair holds him back from the hoedown, he might have to reconsider."

My thoughts: Another fun life-lesson book -- if your child is afraid of getting a haircut, this is a great way to tell them it will be okay (and beneficial!). It also offers the subtle, practical advice of showing your child on yourself or others what you'd like to do to them, to help them see what it will be like (sort of like having your child watch you in the dentist chair before it's their turn).

Recommended Age: 3-7 years
