Some serious yuck went down for Sue Glader 11 years ago. She had a young child. And a cancer diagnosis.

There isn’t much in the way of books that attempt to talk to kids about this topic. So she wrote one. It’s called Nowhere Hair and it’s terrific. Who knew such a delightful book could be written about something so scary? The illustrations by Edith Buenen are stylish and beautiful and the story is clever — a little girl knows her mom’s hair is missing and tries to solve that mystery.

Sue is working to inspire in a place where there is a lot of fear. And thank goodness, because fear has no place at the table with young kids. Go Sue!

What about you, Dear Readers? Have you ever lost your hair? How do think your kids would react if you did?
