Kidlit Book Review - Her Pink Hair

I am pleased to review children's author and illustrator, Jill Dana Siegel's debut children's picture book Her Pink Hair

  • Paperback: 16 pages
  • Publisher: Guardian Angel Publishing, Inc; large type edition edition (November 25, 2014)

The word “cancer” is scary for anyone, especially what the outcome will be. Author and illustrator, Jill Dana captures the true essence of the old saying, “out of the mouth of babes” when she takes you into the thoughts of a young girl as her friend battles cancer. Ms. Dana’s unique approach to an emotional topic will certainly open up the difficult conversation of cancer with your young muses.

About the author: 

Jill is an author, illustrator, artist, teacher, and filmmaker.  She is a certified elementary educator with a Master of Education from FAU. She is an award-winning filmmaker with an MFA in film and television production from USC.  She also studied psychology and motion pictures at the University of Miami. 
The author will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Her Pink Hair to a children's charitable organization.
