Bald is Beautiful: A letter for a fabulous girl is an inspiring and lovely illustrated letter for girls of any age who will go or already are bald. It’s a perfect gift to send love to a powerful girl who needs to be reminded of how beautiful and loved she is. It’s not a book that explains scientific conditions, disease, and treatment. It’s about love, beauty, happiness, and friendship when going through various changes in our lives.
I was on a tour on social media for this powerful and moving children’s book recently. The wonderful people at Blackberry Book Tours approached me to review this story as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September.
This book is written in the style of a letter to any young girl who is losing their hair, whatever the reason. It never specifies in the story as to why a child may be going through hair loss and it approaches the subject in a lighthearted but sensitive way.
It is beautifully illustrated and it compliments the text perfectly. It is an inspiring read that will make young children who are going through such a tough time feel like they can conquer anything. It sends out such a positive message and acknowledges how there will be tough times but you will power through and be ok.
I would say this book is perfect for ages 4-10 as it is mainly a picture book and it has only short sentences in it.
I looked through the book with my young daughters so they can see how some girls go through some awful illnesses and how it is nice to treat them the same, and that every one is beautiful no matter what they look like.
Bald is powerful,
Bald is feminine,
Bald is delicate,
Bald is beautiful,
Bald is lovely,
Bald is strong.
Thanks again to Blackberry Book Tours and the author for organising this tour and creating awareness.
