Why Danielle Murrell Cox wrote My Hair

"My board book is for little girls and little boys. It's showing them different hairstyles that are based off of natural Black hair styles. It's done in a very minimalistic, colourful way.

"It's very eye catching as well. There are a lot of hairstyles and at the end of the book, there's definitely a little 'glossary of style,' showing the different hairstyles.

"There's the Afro puffs, Afros, braids, locks — pretty much anything that you can kind of think of in regards to Black hairstyles is in the book."
