Praise For Nappy Hair

"The family's cross talk takes on the high-voltage spark and crackle of a gospel revival. The accompanying illustrations are deliriously silly and sly." --Parenting magazine

"Herron captures the free-for-all atmosphere of a Sunday get-together and the spontaneous, true-to-life quality of her writing will resonate with children and families who share Brenda's experiences."--Publishers Weekly
