Description: This is a classic Igbo folklore that takes place in an otherworldly time when women grew beards. It is a genesis story of African women and their knack for elaborate hairdos that we have come to admire and love them for today. This Igbo-centric children's book captures the power, creativity, and the sacred practices of feminine beauty throughout the story's beautifully designed illustrations and accurate depictions of Igbo culture as seen and lived by the people in a time before now.
Suggested Ages: 4 and up.
