About The Book

This relatable story from award-winning author-illustrator Hyewon Yum explores the universal fear of first haircuts with honesty, tenderness, and humor.
Little lion needs a haircut. But he doesn’t want one!
Is he worried? No.
Is he scared? NO!
He just likes his hair the way it is. R-O-A-R!
But there’s someone else who needs a haircut, too . . . it’s Dad, and he doesn’t want one, either!
Maybe if they go to the barbershop together, there will be nothing to worry about.

What a ‘charming’ story’ and a perfect follow-up activity! Thanks for sharing and thank you too Hyewon Yum for creating squares for two of my Literacy Quilts. They have been enjoyed by thousands of children and adults! Thanks to Rocco for the interview.
