Editorial Reviews


Readers, when I first read this amazing children’s book by Joy Feldman I was immediately transported back to a time when I first read The Lorax? No, this is not about environmental concerns, but this is a book that has something to say! It is not only fun, but it charms and enlivens kid’s spirits, while at the same time offering a ‘lesson’ embedded in the very cool illustrations and an entertaining plot they won’t forget!


Is Your Hair Made of Donuts? Looks at the world of nutrition, just as The Lorax did for a world that needed to ‘go green.’ Nutrition is a definite problem in this country and, sadly, we know it. There are many overweight children who are growing up and having a difficult time - from being teased (which I know something about because I was an overweight child) - to health problems that come along and are seriously frightening. When we’re young, if we learn a balanced and nutritious diet right off the bat, we won’t have this type of issue anymore and obesity, as well as eating disorders could become a thing of the past. Yes, I know, McDonald’s isn’t going to close anytime soon, but we can find a way to ‘fit’ that Happy Meal in there only once in a while as a treat, instead of running there every night after work because there simply isn’t time to cook that well-balanced meal.

Is Your Hair Made of Donuts? is a true “5-Star” find and, hopefully, will be seen in every school across the country. As kids follow Maddie and Matt Blossom, who have a Mom that has always raised them on healthy foods, children will find themselves drawn into the story. Matt and Maddie are like the rest of us; they watch all their friends enjoy chips, soda and donuts all the time, and this truly makes them feel ’odd’ and left out. Seeing as that they’ve never had junk food, they beg ’old mom’ to let them have it just one time (one ooey-gooey donut). After all, where is the harm in that?

Although Mom tries to explain that junk food is bad, she DOES let them get whatever they want at the grocery sore (in a section called “The Wastelands” which I thought was priceless.) Matt and Maddie soon find out that the junk food, although really good going down, carries with it some serious negatives (which re told in a humorous extremely fun way)

This is one children’s book that offers a fun, entertaining, charismatic plot with a real point, ad we haven’t seen that in fiction in a very long time. My advice? THIS is one book that should be a children’s television series!

St. Augustine News


Is Your Hair Made of Donuts? is a colorful, flat-spined children's picture book with a strong message about the importance of eating a balanced diet. Young Matt and Maddie chafe at having to eat the healthy foods their mom feeds them, when their friends often get to enjoy sugary snacks. Then, their mother seems to give in, allowing them to buy and eat as many donuts and other fattening snacks as they want! But pigging out has its consequences, and they soon discover that "you are what you eat" in more ways than one as donuts appear to grow out of their heads! Matt and Maddie learn not only that too much of a sweet thing is a bad thing, but also that there are plenty of delicious, healthier treats that they can enjoy in moderation - recipes at the back of the book for "Maddie's Favorite Corny Tortillas", "Matt's Favorite Sweet & Sour Swiss Chard Extravaganza", and "Mom's New Dessert Idea... The Nutty Roll" teaches parents and children how to make some of them! Highly recommended.

 Midwest Book Review


Matt and Maddie Blossom are healthy eaters. This is not their choice but at their mom’s insistence. They watch their friends devour junk food during school lunch while they eat apples or carrots. Just once, they would love to gorge on sugary treats like the other kids. One day, while at the grocery store, they ask if they may have donuts. To their surprise, their mom agrees, letting them get whatever they want. As soon as they are home, they eat every single treat: fruit filled, cream filled, chocolate covered, sprinkled. They gobble everything down. Then the sugar hits. Tummy aches that they will not admit to are followed by crazy dreams. The donuts are growing on their heads! Sprinkles fall to the ground and new donuts sprout up! They run to their mom who explains that it is junk food induce nightmare. WE are what we eat. The siblings decide that they would rather eat health from now on.

 This is a wonderful children’s book that teaches the importance of a healthy diet. The illustrate are quite lovely and the recipes at the back are like( pardon the pun) the icing on the cake, or the raisin on the peanut butter, I guess. The book is easy to read and will make a great bedtime story, family read or just something for a kiddo to snuggle up with and enjoy. I highly recommend this book for the classroom, library, home or wherever children congregate to read!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst children’s book ever
By Catherine on July 14, 2021
If you have children, know a child or once were one yourself and come upon a copy of this book, do us all a favor and throw it out. What a horrible message to send to children! The kids in this story want to have some fun snacks like their friends at school. The mother tells them that “sugar CAN hurt you”, and that they will “fall over” if they don’t eat healthy food. She takes them to the snack aisle of the grocery store and lets them eat every single thing they want to teach them a lesson!?!! Don’t be fooled by the fun cover and title. This book is terrible.
