Self-Love, Self-Compassion, and African-American Hair Pride

"Little Miss Linda" is an African American girl who is caught in between two worlds- the one in her head and the world outside of her mind. She is struggling to accept her hair texture. She overhears comments about her hair from those in her community. The comments are hurtful and describe her hair as "ugly," "uncontrollable," and "unappreciated." Little Miss Linda's mother is extremely instrumental in creating a safe environment, which allows Little Miss Linda to grow to appreciate, celebrate, and cherish her hair. Little Miss Linda's hair journey to accept her hair is contagious and she is able to get those around her to appreciate their hair too. This book is designed to enable young children especially Black children to feel positive and accept their beautiful hair. It promotes positive hair-esteem, self-love, and encourages all children to accept the beautiful texture of their hair and dispel hair bullying. Please join "Little Miss Linda's" global campaign against hair bullying by purchasing this book and signing the pledge!.

Dr. Tommie 'Tonea' Stewart wrote, The book of innocence "I Love My Happy Hair" explores and addresses the bias expressed in the American culture. While these negative influences are real and continue to exist, time and self-discovery finds its date and place to consummate the beauty of self-validation and God given protection. In brief, such expressive denial and persecution has occurred and recurred throughout history. Yet, those who are considered with less, in fact, are blessed with more (i.e. Nina Simone, the Singer; The Williams Sisters, Tennis Players; Mae Jemison, the Astronaut; Sojourner Truth, the Activist; Maya Angelo, the Writer; Margaret Walker, the Writer; Harriet Tubman, Black Moses; 2020 Miss Universe; and Miss America). To this end, "I Love My Happy Hair" is another testament for stepping over what seems to be an obstacle onto a positive release for self-love. -Actress.--Former Dean of the College of Visual and Performing Arts.--Alabama State University .

Four Star Review by Amy Louise Hill
Linda J.M. Holloway has created an engaging and relatable story that children will both love and learn from. It's sad to think that children feel insecure about the way they look, whether it's through bullying or personal feelings. No child should dislike who they are and how they look. I Love My happy Hair is the perfect book to inspire body positivity in children, as I believe it will change the way they see themselves entirely once they read Linda's story. Linda J.M. Holloway should be proud of what she's created and I want to wish her all the best in her writing journey. Keep up the good work!
