For a three-year-old boy, his ''upsheren''- the traditional first haircut - is an exciting event. It can also be an occasion for anxiety, which is why this book was conceived: to help parents prepare for, and reassure their child about, this special day. The text's clear and simple style is complemented by delicate watercolor drawings.
