Selah can’t wait to show off her newly loc’d hair at school, but when she bounces off the bus, her classmates react with whispers and a word Selah hasn’t heard before: dreadlocks. The word dread makes her uneasy: is there something scary about her hair? Selah’s family shares stories about standing up to hair discrimination and why they love their locs, helping Selah return to school with confidence, because there’s absolutely nothing dreadful about her hair!

Written with several elements of the African American oral tradition — LOCS, NOT DREADS celebrates the rich history and beauty of naturally loc’d styles.

Reading Age: 6-8 years
