A great review from the Library Media Connection!

"Grades 1-5—Cute little Sophie has long, lovely locks that are curly, twirly, and girly! She can wear her hair in braids or pigtails, or flying free in the rain. As the reader can predict, Sophie does not like a “snarly, tangly mess.” Readers can hear the ouch and the eek as Sophie tries to untangle the mess. In order to get her hair under control, she tries a number of options which all just make her hair a bigger mess and make the reader giggle. Finally, determining her hair is too much work, she heads out for a haircut, but this haircut is special because she will donate her hair to some other little girl who needs it. This is a precious story with princess-like illustrations that are ideal for Sophie’s story of love. The author’s notes include contact information on Locks of Love as well as two other organizations. Highly Recommended."
