In Who Said You Can Touch My Hair? by Dr. Tamecca Rogers, Keith Ross, and London Love, we are introduced to a young girl who is getting sick and tired of people touching her hair. She is very aware that her hair texture is different because she is black. She is told all the time that her hair is so exotic that they can’t help wanting to touch it. The little girl doesn’t like the way people invade her private space without even considering that it’s not welcome. She tries to explain in the best way possible how it isn’t right to just touch someone’s hair, no matter what the circumstances. Just because her hair is pretty and unique, it’s not acceptable and she just wishes people would understand and keep their hands to themselves.
I thought Who Said You Can Touch My Hair? is a powerful yet simple book to read. It’s very important to discuss boundaries at an early age, and this book is a perfect example of someone whose boundaries are not being respected. We learn that this little girl is not okay with people touching her hair, no matter how pretty it might be. Invading someone’s space and doing things like touching their hair is wrong. This book explains why it might be an issue clearly and in a creative way that will keep a child’s attention, along with the beautiful illustrations that will draw the young reader in. I think Dr. Tamecca Rogers, Keith Ross, and London Love have done a wonderful job with this book and I can’t wait to read more of their work.
