Melissa's hair has taken on a life all its own! Melissa's neighbors, her family and even complete strangers tell Melissa how beautiful her hair is. When she was younger she enjoyed compliments about her hair but now that she is older, Melissa wishes people would notice things about her - not her hair. In the process, she and the reader will learn some things about how to make a difference.
Pat Brisson unfolds Melissa's story slowly, evenly and beautifully. Suzanne Bloom's bright and relaxed illustrations fit the text perfectly. A great story for everyone, but especially for young readers ages four to eight.
