In this companion book to the bestselling I Love My Hair, a young boy, Miles, makes his first trip to the barbershop with his father. Like most little boys, he is afraid of the sharp scissors, the buzzing razor, and the prospect of picking a new hairstyle. But with the support of his dad, the barber, and the other men in the barbershop, Miles bravely sits through his first haircut. Written in a reassuring tone with a jazzy beat and illustrated with graceful, realistic watercolors, this book captures an important rite of passage for boys and celebrates African-American identity.

Editorial Reviews

"The light-dappled watercolor paintings give the scenes a real sense of place while bringing the characters to life through a sensitive depiction of expressions, gestures, and body language. A child-centered story, well paced and beautifully illustrated." -Booklist (starred review)
