For a three-year-old boy, his “upsheren” – the traditional first haircut – is an exciting event. It can also be an occasion for anxiety, which is why this book was conceived: to help parents prepare for, and reassure their child about this special day. The text’s clear and simple style is complemented by delicate watercolor drawings.
