Our featured video read aloud is wonderfully performed by the book's author, Hannah Lee. The story is called My Hair. It is a joyful look at the creativity, style, and love that is expressed in the care and appreciation of hair. My Hair is Hannah's first book. It was shortlisted for the 2020 BookTrust Storytime Prize which celebrates and promotes the best books for sharing with young children. Here is a video interview in which Hannah talks about what it was like to write My Hair. She also shares that a second book is coming! It is called The Rapping Princess. In her words, "It's about using your own voice and using the talents that you've been given to the the best of your ability." We can't wait for that one!

After you finish these, there are even more read aloud stories at:
