Meet the Author:

Paula and Rosie Quinn are the founders of Coming Up Rosies, a nonprofit dedicated to fulfilling Rosie’s dream to make bald kids like her smile confidently. At two years old, Rosie was diagnosed with alopecia universalis, an incurable autoimmune disease that results in baldness. From a young age, Rosie taught her parents how to embrace her difference by coming up with magical adventures of her hair each night before bed. Despite Rosie’s confidence, awkward questions and comments about her baldness started to bother Rosie. One day, her parents surprised her with a head scarf made from one of her paintings. Rosie immediately felt confident again, and wanted to share this feeling of pride with all bald children. Rosie lives in Chicago with her sister Caroline, her parents Paula and Larry, and their bernedoodle, Enzo. As a family, they love to go to Cubs games, have dance parties, and cook Italian dinners at home.

My Review: 

My Hair Went on Vacation is a good book for younger readers by Paula Quinn. I thought it was an inspiring story of a little girl named Rosie, who is suffering from a medical condition that keeps her from having hair. I, also, find it to be an important one to share with children. Everyone – young and old – need to understand that we are all different and need to be nicer with our words. Especially, when we do not know what another is going through. Sometimes we can all learn life lessons from a child such as Rosie. I found her to be brave and admirable. Definitely, a good role model to others. 

I enjoyed the illustrations in My Hair Went on Vacation. Chiara Civati’s talent shines through in her pictures throughout. They followed the Rosie’s story perfectly. The pages were so beautiful and vibrant that would catch any young reader’s eye. I adored the colorful and rainbow colored head scarf given to Rosie. 

My Hair Went on Vacation is getting a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for readers who are four to eight years old. I will be proudly donating my copy of this book to my son’s school library. I know the librarian and teachers will be thankful and excited to share this story with their younger students. 

I received My Hair Went on Vacation from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
