Hattie, Get a Haircut

Hattie, Get a Haircut!
By Jenna Glatzer
Illustrated by Monica Kendall

Mom says it’s time for Hattie to get a haircut, but Hattie refuses, declaring that she will “never, no way, not at all” let anyone cut her hair. She falls asleep wishing that her hair never stops growing– but soon regrets her wish! Her hair grows so long that kids jump rope with it and birds nest in it.

When she wakes up, she not only changes her mind about getting her hair cut, but she finds out that she can do a good deed in the process by donating her hair to Locks of Love.

Lyrically written and whimsically illustrated in full color, Hattie, Get a Haircut! is sure to delight children and parents alike.

Is your child afraid to get a haircut? Let Hattie help your child get past the fear and into the hairdresser’s chair.



“Here is a story book that children will plead to be read over and over… The tale is beautifully illustrated in vivid colors. Keep an eye on Hattie’s teddy bear. Your child will enjoy watching the bear’s face mimic Hattie’s. Kids will love seeing animals do things with Hattie’s long tresses, such as the bird building a nest in it. This book is also perfect to help children build their reading skills. Simple words, easy to read, and amusing to all readers. Highly recommended!”
–Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

“The illustrations are upbeat and fun; the text is whimsical, humorous, and kid-friendly.  Locks of Love will have to hire several mail-openers to collect all the locks they’ll receive after Hattie hits the shelves!”
Linda Oatman High, author of books for children and teens, including City of Snow: The Great Blizzard of 1888

“Not only is Hattie Gets A Haircut by Jenna Glatzer the perfect book for a child who doesn’t like to sit still for the barber as one might guess, but it is also a delightful poem touched with humor and a lovely little lesson in giving.”
Carolyn Howard Johnson, author of This is the Place and reviewer for
Preschool Entertainment
