A confidence-boosting story about a little one's first haircut from the creators of Hat On, Hat OffBaby Cakes, and Where's Bunny?

Uh oh, hair in eyes — it's time for this little one's first haircut. The barbershop comes alive with sensory details as he watches other customers and bravely takes his own turn in the chair. Clip, clip, clip… Now there is a big boy in the mirror!

Theo Heras and Renné Benoit once again capture the toddler experience with simplicity and charm. In this "Toddler Tough" book complete with a padded cover, rounded corners, and extra-heavy pages that are easy to turn and hard to tear, The Haircut is perfect for little ones who are just beginning to feel big.
