There have been a lot of great resources coming out for educating and empowering kids with natural hair, and I’m excited to share a sneak peek of the Curly Kids Coloring Book!
Akirashanti Byrd, author and coblogger, CurlCentric.com has created a new coloring book to give children a positive portrayal of curly haired people, so they don’t feel isolated by one of their defining features. She created the book as a tool for her young daughter, since her goal as a mom is to guide her daughter and help her foster a healthy relationship early, with her hair.
As the media cannot be relied upon to show curly hair in a positive light, people have been left looking for alternatives, and Curl Centric has provided one – the Curly Kids Coloring Book! The book features more than thirty different images, including action shots, mermaids, princesses and ballerinas. The girls in the coloring books have also arranged their hair in a variety of styles that range from cornrow braids, puffs, two strand twists, bantu knots, wash and gos, locs and many more, to show girls with curly hair the amazing potential their hair has to be defined and redefined.
Here are a few coloring book pages to give you a sense of the Curly Kids Coloring Book, but there are 30 more pages so be sure to get the book for it’s low price!
