5.0 out of 5 stars Being different is okay August 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most young girls would love to have Annie's curly hair, but Annie wanted straight hair like her best friend Mia had. She tried every way she could think of to straighten her hair, but the curls kept springing back. Annie's dad convinced her that the world would be a confusing place if everyone looked exactly alike. Annie understood, but deep down, she still longed for straight hair. One day an unexpected incident showed Annie how being different could have its advantages, and this time she took the lesson to heart.

It's an enjoyable story for younger kids, especially girls, and it's the right length for a bedtime story. The vocabulary is simple enough for kids, and the colorful illustrations will help to keep a child's attention. There's a subtle lesson about respecting differences in others and loving yourself that most kids will pick up on.

5.0 out of 5 stars `Each of us is different, we're all unique.' August 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Author Shirly R.L. and Illustrator Anahit Aleksanyan continue to create stories about an adorable little girl named Annie whose crowning feature is a head of curls. With wise writing and beautiful illustrations they offer a story that is not only fun for children (especially little girls who worry about such things) but also that has some very wise lessons.

Annie greets her friend Mia whom she hasn't seen for a long time and the girls enjoy a day of playing with dolls, making a dollhouse, and putting on a show for their parents until Mia must leave at the end of the day. Annie loves Mia and thinks Mia with her straight blonde hair is beautiful, but when Annie looks in the mirror she notices now that her own hair is very curly: she wishes it were straight like Mia's and she attempts to comb and brush her curly locks to no avail. Despite her parents support that Annie's hair is beautiful in its curly state, Annie continues to attempt to straighten her hair by placing heavy books on her curls as she reclines in bed. Her father sits beside her and reminds her of a shared movie with penguins and the zoo with elephants and how they all look alike - and how boring the world would be if everyone looked the same. The next day Annie's now loved curls become the safety net for a falling little baby bird, proving that what her father said about being unique was absolutely right. And her supportive mother adds `What matters most is that you love yourself,' Even your curls!

Books of this caliber are not only terrific bedtime stories for children, but they leave thoughts in sleepy heads about appreciating their own unique selves. Grady Harp, August 13

5.0 out of 5 stars "We Have A Curly Hair Problem".............. August 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author's book and the adorable, colorful illustrations made this the funniest and sweetest bedtime story out of the whole series and my niece's favorite..The underlying message of the story teaches children it's okay to be different, everyone is unique in their own special way, will make them look in the mirror and feel good about themselves every day..

Annie has decided today after playing with her best friend Mia, that she has a "red headed curly hair problem"..So, instead of talking to Mom and Dad first Annie will try very funny things to make her hair straight...Dad finally catches Annie lying in bed with her hair spread out on a pillow with a bunch of heavy books on top..This picture alone had my niece and I laughing..In fact, when I turned the next page Dad is now sitting on the bed with Annie and I think he even has a funny smile on his face looking at her..She finally gives up when Dad tells her she has beautiful hair and if everyone looked a like in this world it would be a very boring place..When she goes to the park the next day to play with friends a tiny baby blue bird will try to fly, but will the bird fall.....Who will be their to save the day...

The entire series is inspirational and always very educational..I highly recommend this author's books as a great way to teach children important lessons in life...

More About the Author

Thank you for visiting my Author page!

Ever since my childhood I've spent hours and hours reading and later, writing. I was delighted with writing and exercised this love mainly producing short stories and writing personal diaries. Over the years, I continued to develop myself, reading and learning, acquiring a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration as well as a degree in Naturopathics. During this time, writing had become a habit and second nature for me. Recently, I decided that it was time to share the stories I write with others, so I started publishing my children's stories at Amazon.

As a mother of three adorable children, it is important to me to equip my kids with the right values, build their self-esteem which will later make them capable and successful grown-ups. My method is through presenting them with real-life common situations.

Learning from failures as well as from success, persistence and focus on the end-result and on things that are under our control, the respect of others as well as respect for ourselves, making progress one step at a time and the importance of family values are only some of the ideas and values that I teach my kids. It is very important for me to pass these on to other children in the world as well. All this can be achieved by conveying these massages using funny, joyful easy-reading stories brought together with colorful happy illustrations.

I was inspired by my youngest when creating the character of Annie in the series "Inspirational Stories for Kids Collection". My daughter even looks much like cute little Annie.

As one who is passionate about writing, I truly hope my stories will elevate and bring a lot of joy to children all over the world.
