She can now add, Children's Book Author & Illustrator to her list. Her first published book, CURLIES COLOR TOO (A Coloring/Hairstyle Book) further promotes her message about natural hair by encouraging a dialog with parents and their children about natural hair but with a deeper message- SELF LOVE. By touching on this subject Yolanda Renee encourages parents to speak to their children during their formative years about natural hair and acceptance to promote a positive self-image and have a strong sense of awareness to be able to filter society's other agenda of promoting the opposite of African American beauty. This multipurpose book is her effort to change the views on natural hair that are portrayed in the media. The book includes illustrations that are appealing to young girls, activities to help them learn their shapes, colors, letters, hairstyles and more. For parents there is literature to help them learn more about natural hair and the message they should be giving their young girls, as well as other helpful lists and tips like natural hair children product lines, hairstyles, and hair regimens. CURLIES COLOR TOO is now available on Amazon and ETC Boutique.
