Product description

About the Author

Divya, often called 'baal ki dukaan', struggled with unruly, thick, curly hair for over two decades before she realized her hair looks best when it's left uncombed! She loves using her curls to hold the numerous pens, pencils and paintbrushes she needs while she's writing, doodling or working. She gets her best creative ides when she's hanging upside down, doing anti-gravity yoga. If you're in Bangalore, you might spot her (and her distinctive curls!) with her husband Vivek. Their quest to eat bizarre foods from around the world features in her first book, Dare Eat That. Follow her at: www.divyaanand.in

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story about loving and accepting yourself the way you are
By Nikita A. on 23 June 2020
“I hate my curly hair” is the story of a girl who, as the title suggests, has curly hair and hates it. She has many reasons for it and the rhyming prose and witty illustrations take us through her feelings about it throughout the book.

The little girl in the book (I’m going to call her CHG - Curly-Haired-Girl, because she doesn’t have a name) hates her hair for the most part - the teasing and bullying she experiences at the hands of other kids only make her hate it more. She gets called so many names and tries so many different ways to get rid of her curls, but obviously nothing works.

But then something happens (you’ll have to read the book for that) and CHG realises that having curly hair isn’t so bad after all. I was half expecting CHG to meet another child who had straight hair who wished that they had curls like hers and that’s what would make CHG accept and like, maybe even love her curls, but that’s not what happens. She comes to realise that all on her own, which is pretty empowering if you think about it.

This book gave me the opportunity to have two important conversations with my child. Firstly, about self-love and self-acceptance, and then about teasing and bullying.

In addition to the cute little story, the illustrations add so much emotion as well as a little bit of humour into the story. I especially loved how something or the other was stuck in CHG’s hair on each page. From leaves to lady birds to spiders and cobwebs to paper planes to whatnot, the illustrator seems to have had a lot of fun and has succeeded in capturing how ‘bushy’ and ‘unruly’ curly hair can be especially for children who don’t have curly hair.

My daughter has asked to read this book at least once every day since it arrived and I’m pretty sure it’s going to stay that way for a few more days at least.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful read for children
By Aarti on 16 June 2020
Inspired by the author’s own life, I Hate My Curly Hair, shows that there is beauty in everyone despite how they look. This is a very short poetic story with great vibrant pictures that are suitable expressive and bursting with life.

A humorous and warm look at a little girl and her curls, with an imaginative language to create an amusing set of characters and story, this book truly appreciates and brings forward the theme of self-love.

This is such a cute and delightful story and tells the readers to accept themselves as they are because they are pretty in their own unique way. Very easy language is used and the author has followed rhyme schemes to engage the readers and increase the audience. The text is supported by dramatic illustrations that are lovely & delightful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life or Curly Hair Girl♥️
By sneha on 2 July 2020
It's always hard to talk about bullying in general, when I was younger I got bullied because of my skin color as I am a brown Girl, when I grew older I realised that my skin color is beautiful and I have started accepting me for who I am, when I started reading this book I remember how bulling plays an important part in life, it may help you to grow or it will totally destroy you.This book is a story of girl who was fed up of her curry hair bacause people used to tease her all the time, it was difficult for her to handle the bullying but one fine day when she realised that the person who is bullying her is actually having his own insecuries and he is trying to hide it and when she realised her worst she became happy again, Book is beautiful written and I am able to finished it in ten minutes, I must say it is a cute story so go for it and let your childrens know how beautiful they are and they don't have to get bullied by anyone...Must Read💕

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes we forget the power of kids' stories ...
Reviewed in the United States on 14 September 2020
It's a poem, it's an innocent kid's book that's been fabulously illustrated. But at it's core, it's about feeling different but yearning to fit in, dealing with bullies - with friendship, and finally accepting who you are. Yes we are different, but there's a "flair to the unruly hair" :)
