I was asked to review an adorable children’s book called “Curlee Girlee.” My 8 year old daughter was very excited for me to read this book to her.
Curlee Girlee’s hair isn’t like everyone else’s…
… and she’s on a mission to straighten that out, ASAP. Snuggle up with your favorite little girl and get lost in Curlee Girlee’s colorful adventures as she combs, tugs, rolls, and strawberry syrups her way through the day, trying to tame her wild mane! In the end, she’ll discover an exciting secret that just might change the way she sees her hair—and teach your little one a forever lesson on embracing her beautiful uniqueness.
Our Mission: Confidence grows from head to toe.
Curlee Girlee teaches all little girls to love the gifts that make them special, from curly hair like hers, to freckles, gap teeth and beyond. Too often and too early in their lives, girls are told that “beauty” has just one definition, and that anything else is unwanted. Curlee Girlee carries the message to even the youngest girls that “pretty” takes all forms, and ultimate beauty starts with self-love, confidence, and embracing uniqueness. Together with her, we can set a foundation for a new generation of stronger, bolder women, whose beauty radiates from the inside out.
The first thing I noticed about this book was all of the colorful illustrations. The colors are amazing, and the title of the book looks like it really is sparkling! Each page is filled with colorful pictures that holds my daughter’s interest. My daughter says the message this book relays is that you are unique and special no matter what type of hair you have, or how you look! Every girl in unique in their own ways! I love that she has this book to read and it teaches her that.
I love reading this book as much as my 8 year old daughter does. I can definitely relate to Curlee Girlee. When I was a child I had lots and lots of curls in my hair, and hated it! I sure wish I had this book when I was growing up.
