"Can I Touch Your Hair' is the result of three incredible partnerships - two authors, two illustrators, and their work together. The reflection of these partnerships in the book is multifaceted. The illustrators are a husband and wife team; the authors friends and collaborators. In the book, a black boy and white girl are paired in a poetry writing assignment for school. Both are quite hesitant and have preconceived notions about their partner. As the book plays out - one poem per page in alternating perspectives - the pair learn that they have much more in common than divides them. This is a quick but deep read that would benefit young and old alike. A timely publication that deserves a spot on every shelf. ( )

This literary work explores the interactions between Irene and Charles, two 5th children of different races, and the challenges they face to work together despite not knowing each other. This book uses themes of race and innuendos to point out the importance of cultural acceptance and education. This book is well suited for middle and high school students, as the use of poetry to convey difficult lessons of race in a "fun" manner, which can serve an invaluable lesson for cultural awareness.

"A fresh approach to exploring interracial communication.

In an unusual, long-distance collaboration, poets Latham and Waters have crafted a collection of poems that explore the intersection between race and childhood friendships. Each poet reveals his or her individual perspective on shared experiences by imagining their childhood selves existing in the current day of complex racial realities. Their interactions, expressed through poetic verse, navigate the ambiguous and often challenging feelings that children encounter as they grapple with identity and race—a process forced on them when they are paired for a classroom poetry project. The story takes readers through school days, interludes with concerned parents, and polarizing peer interactions. In one scene, young Irene, who is white, feels ostracized when she isn’t invited to play freeze dance with the black girls on the playground. At the beach, young Charles, who is black, is teased by white kids who wear dreadlocks and cornrows, appropriating the culture of black people, while bullying and spewing hate toward Charles. In between the uncomfortable moments are lighter, universal childhood scenarios, as when Charles asserts his choice to be vegan at a traditional soul-food dinner or when Irene describes the solace she finds in her love of horses. Interracial couple Qualls and Alko contribute graceful illustrations that give the feelings expressed visual form.

A brave and touching portrayal worthy of sharing in classrooms across America." A Kirkus starred review, www.kirkusreviews.com

This small book of poetry is big on feelings. It really reminds me of what it was like to be a young kid, meeting people who were of different backgrounds/upbringings, and feeling the loneliness and isolation that comes from being misunderstood by classmates.

This is a book I'd love to see be a part of curriculum -- middle school and high school -- especially in a poetry unit. Heck, even college, honestly. I also believe that adults will get a lot from this book too because it's poignant and addresses situations that people of all ages can identify with.

It's smart, thoughtful and emotional. My only critique is that I think it could have been longer, but if I were in middle/high school, it's a good length because the reader won't get bored by drawn-out poems or a drawn-out collection. The short poems in this book really say a great deal.

I was fortunate to receive the audio version of "Can I Touch Your Hair?" via Netgalley. These are my honest thoughts. ( )
