Bubbie, like many grandmothers, turns the ordinary into the spectacular and the mundane into something miraculous. In Bubbie’s Magical Hair, the lyrical text combines with playful illustrations to take readers on a whimsical journey as Bubbie and her grandchildren grow older, reminding us of all the ways grandparents bring us joy, comfort, and inspiration.
Through her adventures, Bubbie exemplifies the key values of—education, family, tolerance, justice, charity, and kindness to others.
Brown Curls turned to gray waves… Bubbie winds her hair through the tales she has lived.
Nature and imagination combine to honor the power of all grandparents and their enduring relationships. A visual delight that can be read on many levels, exploring feelings, science, international customs, and imagination. Ribbons, stars, and dandelion dust spread magic.
This is a universal story of passing on the essence of loved ones, as life continues.
Look for her in the mirror, in the pocket of your coat, and when you look both ways crossing the street.

Bubbie’s Magical Hair is a delightful, well-written book about relationships intertwined with adventure and love through the seasons of life. Each colorful page had me reminiscing of my own grandmother, while my own children enjoyed experiencing the illustrated moments through a child’s eyes. Rolnick has written an endearing book for any age no matter what your grandmother’s title. ~Sally Dunn, Graphic Designer and Photographer
