this week's silly book recommendation: Hairdo!

Hairdo: What We Do and Did to Our Hair (2002, Holiday House) is the second Ruth Freeman Swain book we've received as a gift (the first was Bedtime!). an aunt knows the author from her school days. and we feel fortunate to benefit from that connection. we love these books!

Freeman Swain writes in a kid-friendly way about the history of hairstyles, from ancient Egyptian partygoers to protesting 1960s hippies. Cat Bowman Smith's humorous illustrations mesh well with the words.
