Written in rhyme and accompanied by whimsical, colorful illustrations, the story unfolds about a little girl looking for her mother s hair. This picture book is written for children ages 3 to 8, but can be enjoyed and appreciated by all ages. It helps children understand chemotherapy and how cancer and hair loss are not their fault. It is a story about fear and sadness, being silly and wearing crazy hats, and loving those who look different. This is a must buy for consumer and family library collections. It is a positive tool to guide conversations with children, giving them hope, comfort, and a better understanding of cancer treatments.

From the Author
It's not fair, I know. Oh, how I know. But you've got children at home who are going to wonder what is going on with you. And while you might be able to dodge the issue in the beginning, when your hair starts falling out, you have to face the music and dance with the kids. They deserve it, and it will help relieve the stress of holding that information inside of you.
I wrote Nowhere Hair to help. I believe that it will.
