An entertaining and acclaimed picture book that teaches the importance of asking for permission first as a young girl attempts to escape the curious hands that want to touch her hair. It seems that wherever Aria goes, someone wants to touch her hair. In the street, strangers reach for her fluffy curls. Even under the sea, in the jungle and in space, she's chased by a mermaid, monkeys and poked by aliens...until finally, Aria has had enough!This humorous picture book speaks to a national conversation on strangers touching black hair and sparks an important conversation on personal boundaries for children. Don't Touch My Hair! can be used to teach young readers about personal boundaries and asking for permission and that it's all right to be told no as well.
