Paperback: 24 pages
“Bald is Beautiful: A letter for a fabulous girl” is an inspiring and lovely illustrated letter for girls of any age who will go or already are bald. It’s a perfect gift to send love to a powerful girl who needs to be reminded of how beautiful and loved she is. It’s not a book that explains scientific conditions, disease, and treatment. It’s about love, beauty, happiness, and friendship when going through various changes in our lives.

My eleven-year-old daughter and I both took turns reading and writing down our thoughts regarding Bald is Beautiful.
We both agreed the illustrations were cute but geared towards younger viewers. My daughter said, “I can’t see an adult or older kid reading this book unless a younger person couldn’t read well yet. The pictures are a bit babyish.”
My daughter wasn’t familiar with a “hat and scarf party” but, after I explained what it was, Bald is Beautiful made more sense and was more enjoyable for her.
We both agree Bald is Beautiful was a cute book; however, my daughter thought it needed more words. There were a few pages with only illustrations.
The word cancer is scary, but I believe… we believe… this book will bring a smile to many young children facing cancer.
