Maybe just the second best.

The story had a very natural flow and voice that made it easy to add fun voice inflections.

This is quite possibly the greatest children's book ever written. Well, maybe that's a bit much. Maybe just the second best.

Great illustrations.

The book does a great job in teaching kids that their own individuality and believing in themselves is not only ok, but important.

If I had enough hair I'd make my own bouffant.

Big Bouffant is the story of a precocious little girl who doesn't want to look like the other girls in her class. Annabelle wants to be an original, a one-of-a-kind. Having two daughters - and being quite the girly-girl myself - I found this story delightful. Even my two boys laughed at some of Annabelle's antics as she tried to get just the hairstyle she wanted. We loved the illustrations and rhymes. The story had a very natural flow and voice that made it easy to add fun voice inflections. Some of our "read and chat" point for this book were:

* Hair styles: We talked about what different hair styles the people in our family had, which ones were our favorites, as well as the ones we didn't like so much. We also talked about different hair styles the kids see at school, church, and when we go shopping.
* Hair styling products: At one point in the book, Annabelle uses food to try to get her hair to stay in the bouffant. So I took the opportunity to talk to my munchkins about what types of hair styling products are actually okay to use in their hair and which ones they needed either mom or dad to help them use.
* One-of-a-kind: I asked my kids what talents and traits make them each unique. We had a fun discussion and shared what things we liked about each other, too.

Witty and funny, the Big Bouffant is a standout in a sea of childrens' books. The colorful and rich illustrations combine with humorous and intelligent text to carry a message of individualism and acceptance of differences. As a pediatrican and uncle, I highly recommend this book.

Annabelle is bored with the boring way the girls in her class do their hair each morning. "Ponytails and braids! Ponytails and braids!" she moans. "I don't see anything but ponytails and braids!"

She decides to make a hairdo to top everyone; she decides to make her hair into a bouffant.

When everyone copies her, she switches gears and turns to designing a more imaginative dress.

"Annabelle went home and slumped on her bed.

`My bouffant's so boring---
I want something new instead!'
She thought very hard
with her eyes closed tight.
`I know what I'll do,
but I need to start tonight."

I love to read stories about kids who don't follow the crowd, and I loved seeing the crazy bouffant hairstyles, so this was a fun read for me.
