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. 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. 

"As a grandmother of young children and an author of books of creativity for young children, I feel particularly drawn to this beautiful and emotionally deep story of Bubbie's Magical Hair. The emotional connection is strong and deeply important for anyone who has ever loved." —MaryAnn F. Kohl, Author/ Educator, Bright Ring Publishing

Abbe Rolnick grew up in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland. Her first major cultural jolt occurred at age 15 when her family moved to Miami Beach, Florida.

Her writings include: River of Angels, Color of Lies, and Founding Stones, novels in the Generation of Secrets Series, as well as Cocoon of Cancer: An Invitation to Love Deeply, and Tattle Tales: Essays and Stories Along the Way.
