The Mini Myths board book series puts a modern spin on ancient Greek mythology for preschoolers.
* MEDUSA refuses to care for her hair, her long locks getting knottier and wilder with each passing page. Her hair rebellion elicits frozen expressions of shock from her family, but nothing will convince Medusa to brush. Only her hairdresser approaches Medusa with bravery and a blade, successfully solving the problem . . . with a short haircut! All are pleased with this drastic yet adorable solution.
* Leslie Patricelli’s depictions of this physical comedy bring a lively visual narrative to Joan Holub’s expertly focused text.
* Includes a short summary of the original Medusa myth at the end.
Brush Your Hair, Medusa! by Joan Holub is a preschool board book in her Mini Myths collection. My three year old, Natalie loved this book so much! We read it several times the day it arrived and we continue to read it at least once a day, even though we have had it for well over a month. The illustrations are wonderful and the story telling is just perfect. I love that there is a summary of the real myth at the end that gives Natalie some extra knowledge and allows us to talk about the book and the myth.
Natalie’s favorite part is Medusa’s “crowly” (what Natalie calls curly) hair that is all crazy at the beginning. She laughs and laughs when we start reading. This is an absolutely wonderful story that we cherish. I will definitely be getting others in the Mini Myths collection.
