Tisa hates Mondays because that's when she gets her long, thick, wild hair combed and braided, so she hides. But once Tisa's hair is done, she loves it so much that her mother can hardly tear her away from the mirror! Full color.
In this rhyming story, an African American girl hides when it's time to comb and braid her hair.
Is there a woman alive who has always been satisfied with her hair? Tisa's hair is wild-but her mother knows just how to braid it into twenty thick braids! Now Tisa's finally happy. Charming pictures show the warmth in this family. A read-it-alone book in rhyme.
