Go along with one nervous little boy, as he faces a day he DREADS - Haircut Day! He hides under the bed with fear at the beginning, but by the end, he has learned that it's not so scary. He learns to cope with his fear of the barber, and even maybe like it a little! Michele Griffin is no stranger to `picky' children, having spent 7 years as a paediatric occupational therapist working with children who were `extra-sensitive' or had `sensory' issues. Often demonstrating strong dislikes for haircuts, tags in shirts, seams on socks and lumps in food, these children are sometimes very challenging for parents to rear. Griffin created this story to foster communication, tolerance and understanding between parent and child.
