Her Pink Hair

"Long brown hair, short brown hair, no hair, short fuzzy hair, pink hair ..."

Her Pink Hair is the story of a young girl's perspective of her best friend's battle with cancer. Through a poetic text and mixed-media clay illustrations, experience the story through a unique lens. Suggested age for readers: 5-8 years.

I received this book from a drawing on Instagram. I didn't expect to win, but I did. Being a picture book author myself, I'm always delighted to see other people's work. What I loved about this book was how the illustrations are done with clay. It reminded me of watching Gumby or Davey and Goliath as a child. The book doesn't go into any of the harsh details surrounding cancer, but it's a wonderful way to introduce and open up the discussion with younger children who might be dealing with a sick loved one.
