A joyful, body-positive picture book about a young Indian American girl's journey to accept her body hair and celebrate her heritage after being teased about her mustache. Laxmi never paid much attention to the tiny hairs above her lip. But one day while playing farm animals at recess, her friends point out that her whiskers would make her the perfect cat. She starts to notice body hair all over--on her arms, legs, and even between her eyebrows. With her parents' help, Laxmi learns that hair isn't just for heads, but that it grows everywhere, regardless of gender. Featuring affirming text by Shelly Anand and exuberant, endearing illustrations by Nabi H. Ali, Laxmi's Mooch is a celebration of our bodies and our body hair, in whichever way they grow.

Human and civil rights attorney Shelley Anand joins the children's literary world with Laxmi's Mooch, a funny, body-positive book about loving all of you. Four-year-old Indian American Laxmi has tiny hairs above her lip: a "mooch," or mustache in Hindi.

Laxmi isn't initially aware of her mooch. But when playing farm animals with her friends, they suggest that she be a cat ... Laxmi's Mooch.
