Book Description:

This story is about Rosie, who lives in Chicago. Within three weeks she lost all of her hair and asked, "Where did it go?" Rosie loved to rock the bald, without even skipping a beat. She happily wore sunscreen -not even a hat!- in the summer heat. At bedtime, Rosie would tell her own stories with a smile on her face. She'd imagine her hair going on magical adventures all over the place. From a young age, Rosie loved herself and was not phased by her look, So her mother decided to share her spirit to teach others through this book. Come on this adventure with a confident bald girl, Who tells us Bald is beautiful! as she smiles with a twirl. We hope this book can inspire you to love others as they are, And to love yourself every day, whether your hair is near or far.


'I woke up one morning, quick out of bed, to find curls on my pillow instead of my head. I felt so confused by this weird situation. My hair wasn't in its usual location!'

Children who suffer from hair loss will feel so special to have a book written especially for them. Author Paula Quinn and illustrator Chiara Civati have perfectly captured the emotions of a special little girl named Rosie who has lost her hair because of an autoimmune disease called Alopecia. The easy-to-read rhyming text and the captivating illustrations make it fun to read and it also educates about the effects of this disease. This cheerful and positive little girl teaches children that they need to love themselves and take pride in themselves, even if their hair is gone and their head is bald.

Parents and teachers will appreciate the vocabulary page and teacher's guide with activities and questions and this is also a book that needs to be in every school and public library. My Hair Went on Vacation is a valuable resource that definitely deserves a 5-Star rating!

I received a copy of this book via iRead Book Tours but a favorable review was never required. These are my own thoughts.
