"The Hair Fairy visited our elementary school to kick off the “Pennies for Pasta” campaign during morning assembly.  We more than doubled the amount collected during the 2015 drive compared to 2014, and we thank the Hair Fairy for inspiring our students to care about other children.  We all loved her!"            -Martha Risley

"For two years, my students have had the pleasure of an amazing Hair Fairy visit right in our classroom. Brianne Banning does an outstanding job of engaging the students in the tale of strength, faith and how beauty truly comes from within!  We enjoyed the colorful illustrations of the projected story as well as the opportunity to act out the story with the beautiful and funny Hair Fairy!  Brianne Banning's books are favorite reads in our classroom!"          -Trish Shields, teacher

Reviews and comments:

"I read your book and cried. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August of 2011. The hats part really got to me because I had some sweet ladies at our local yarn shop in town give of their time and yarn to make me some wonderful hats that I still wear now. They were a blessing because my treatments were during the fall and winter and they helped keep my head warm. Thank you for this book..."       -Rayna Kopriva

 "The Beautiful Bald Princess takes the reader on a journey of faith, hope, and courage through the eyes of a young girl. It is a wonderful reminder to all-young and old alike-of the things that are truly important in life."
