In my family, when the sun goes down, our hair goes up!
My brother slips a durag over his locs.
Sis swirls her hair in a wrap around her head.
Daddy covers his black waves with a cap.
Mama gathers her corkscrew curls in a scarf.
I always wear a bonnet over my braids, but tonight I can't find it anywhere!

Bedtime Bonnet gives readers a heartwarming peek into quintessential Black nighttime hair traditions and celebrates the love between all the members of this close-knit, multi-generational family.

Perfect for readers of Hair Love and Crown: An Ode to the Fresh Cut!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "If you are a fan of Natasha Anastasia Tarpley's I Love My Hair (1998) and Matthew A. Cherry's Hair Love (2019), you will fall in love with this portrayal of a Black family's nighttime routine. Narrated by a young girl, it begins, "In my family, when the sun goes down, our hair goes up!" Vibrant illustrations show the various family members preparing for bed in their own way: the girl's brother twists his locs and dons a durag, Grandma ties a kerchief over her rollers, Daddy puts on his wave cap, and her sister spins her long hair up in a wrap. After Mommy braids the little girl's hair, tragedy strikes. The girl is unable to find her hair bonnet to keep her hair in place at night! After looking everywhere with her family's help, a hilarious twist reveals its location. This picture book is ideal for readers searching for stories about natural hair. It is a wonderful window and mirror that lends itself well to lessons on self-concept, bedtime routines, and learning about differences."

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""In my family, when the sun goes down, our hair goes up," begins this story about a intergenerational black family's nighttime hair routines. The youngest, an expressive girl sporting two Afro puffs, introduces readers to her family as they begin readying for bed. Her brother "twists and tightens each of his locs" before donning a durag, while Sis "combs her hair in a swirl" before putting it in a wrap. Her father's brush "makes rows of black waves appear," her grandmother "rolls up her silver mane," and her mother "gathers her corkscrew curls" before each adds their own covering (wave cap, kerchief, scarf). Wearing her own hair in a freshly braided crown, the girl discovers that her bedtime bonnet, which helps "protect my hair from tangles and lint," is missing. A search begins, the whole family pitching in until the purple cap is found in an amusing spot. Redd's family represents a range of varying hair textures and care routines, while Myers's vibrant illustrations bring the close-knit crew and their daily rituals to affectionate life. Ages 3--7. (Apr.)"
