This Great America – (inside the book)


First Bigboy Haircut - Sally Ann Zickel
The innocent look of being afraid;

Scary the sound, buzzing clippers won’t hurt.

Close to my ear, I shall not close my eyes;

Focused on Mommy, it’s almost over.

Being so brave, I deserve a sucker.

And staying so still, can’t wait til it’s done;

My brother looks on, no worries for him;

I’m the one in the chair, losing my hair.

Thinking about all my big boy rewards;

Ice cream and candy, or maybe a prize.

From baby to boy, I’m now growing up;

Many more times I will need a haircut.

No more in fear, taking it like a man;

My first big boy haircut, how cute I am.
