My Mommy's Hair
I brush my fingers through my Mommy’s hair. It stretches out, encircling the room like the canopy of a tree. It settles proudly atop her head like a crown.
As a little girl admires her Mommy’s beautiful hair, her delight is conveyed with details of touch, smell, and sight as well as colorful metaphors. This everyday and special moment that highlights the bond between mother and child. Along with a celebration of diverse hair, this brief and beautiful book can provide a great mentor text to guide students through the process of writing their own personal narrative or “small moment” story. By recognizing the potential in each second, children can exercise their ability to be creative and find joy in the world around them.
