TomTom Loves His Hair! is featured in the April 2020 issue of the Midwest Book Review online magazine "Children's Bookwatch (midwestbookreview.com/cbw/apr_20.htm#Picturebook)  

At sometime every kid has been reluctant to have a hair cut. And like most kids, TomTom does not want to sit still long enough for a haircut! "TomTom Loves His Hair! by author/storyteller Dot Gibbens and illustrator/artist Karine Makartichan is an impressively original, delightfully entertaining and gently humorous picture book story as his Mom figures out a way to give TomTom that so much needed trim!  Action and adventure abound as TomTom goes through his daily activities, and then guess what?  TomTom Loves His hair!  While very highly recommended for elementary school and community library collections for children, it should be noted for personal reading lists that "TomTom Loves His Hair! is also readily available in a paperback edition (9781977217240, $15.95) and in a digital book format (Kindle, $3.99).
