Lion Needs a Haircut



The picture book Lion Needs a Haircut is a relatable story from award-winning author/illustrator Hyewon Yum exploring the universal fear of first haircuts with honesty, tenderness, and humor.

Little lion needs a haircut. But he doesn’t want one! Is he worried? No. Is he scared? NO! He just likes his hair the way it is. R-O-A-R!

But there’s someone else who needs a haircut, too . . . it’s Dad, and he doesn’t want one, either! Maybe if they go to the barbershop together, there will be nothing to worry about.
