Abigail’s Glorious Hair
Abigail has a lot of hair. A lot of poufy, poufy hair! Her hair takes a long time to be combed, especially when it has just been washed. But each stroke of the comb, each twist of a braid and each passing of fingers through her hair is a moment of bonding between mother and daughter. The ritual of parting and combing the hair also provides a moment for the women of the family to sit and share important matters. Little girls still safe and snug in their mother’s arms, mothers with daughters young enough to need their hair combed, and those who remember this experience, can all enjoy Abigail’s Glorious Hair. Delightful illustrations by Rachel Moss skillfully capture the mood of the story.
