Book Overview

A girl spends the day at her mother's hair salon, a neighborhood gathering place.

Saturday is Shauna's favorite day of the week, because that's the day she helps Momma at her beauty parlor, The New You. Shauna describes how she and Momma prepare for the day's customers - stacking clean towels, donning smocks, making fresh coffee.

An engaging array of customers comes and goes, all of whom are as colorful as the cheerful salon...

a nice slice of americana

This book is about a typical Saturday that a young girl and her momma spend together at her momma's beauty parlor--The New You. The young girl has her own smock with her name on it. She helps her momma throughout the day--one of her jobs is to bring magazines to customers while they wait. Filled with warmth, you can feel the love between the mother and daughter. It's nicely written, nicely illustrated, and the story flows. It gives a nice sense of a neighborhood. It is a good grade "B" book. The other reviewer that slams this book as being anti-male does not know what she/he is talking about. The only reference in the whole book about a male is the husband--he walks to the beauty parlor with his wife and daughter, lifts the metal gate, and kisses his "girls" goodbye as he leaves to go to work.

Children help...

At first I was not sure that this would be a book to read to children. As I read I realized tha it was similar in style of a book that my young son is reading in school. It is perfect for relaying a message to young girls, that it is good to have a close relationship with your mother. Also, it is good for a child to want to be responsible. The color in the book was great. Children can be very drawn in by the vibrant colors.I would recommend that this book can be used with young children because it givews pleasure to the recognition of African Americans in our society today. Young children need to see themselves represented in literature.
