This review is about the printing, not the book "Big Hair, Don't Care"--which is a very cute book.
I often buy books like this and just hand them to my daughter to read. I am SO GLAD I didn't this time. In the middle of this book, an entire different book is printed. It's called "Mommy and Daddy want to F...." It is HORRIBLE. It explains exactly how to have intercourse in a disturbing rhymey fashion. It references pedophilia. It uses every disgusting analogy or phrase you can think of or hopefully have never heard of. This is NOT a children's book, even though it has illustrations and it rhymes.
This awful misprint is not the author's fault. I feel bad leaving a 1 star review, I just don't know how else I can let people know. If you buy this book, beware---look through it before you hand it off to your kids!
UPDATE: We were contacted by both Amazon and the Author of this book. Both were very apologetic, supportive, and kind. Amazon requested the book back, and they did a full investigation as to how this happened. They determined it was a single instance misprint, and verified that there were no other misprints. They sent me a correct copy right away. While I wouldn't expect this ever to happen again with this book, my advice is to always scan through (or even better, READ) the books you get for your children before you give them to your children.
As a consequence of internal biases people are not used to thinking of racial differences in terms of beauty just that they are different. So black beauty is usually defined as how similar hair texture, facial features and skin tone resemble Caucasian standards of beauty. Everything about us is to be celebrated. It would almost seem to be an inherited trait for females to play with, twist even chew their hair and yet recently, young African-American girls have been singled out because of their hair styles, making newspaper headlines in quite a few States. Kudos to Crystal Swain-Bates for tackling the subject in such a sweet way. I hope that this book will be purchased by everyone looking to enlighten and be entertained at the same time.
