Shampoo on Tuesday [Hairy Tuesday]

Uri Orlev
AGE: 3-6

Three-year-old Michael really hates having his hair washed every Tuesday. He cries and screams. Then his sister Daniella has a good idea: why not put an end to his suffering and shave his head? So she takes him to Benny the Barber. But when Michael sees Benny shaving another boy`s head, he gets scared- he doesn`t want to be bald! So he promises Daniella never to cry any more when he has his hair washed. And when he doesn`t, he gets a reward!
