Bippity Bop Barbershop

This is a great story about a little boy named Miles and his first trip to the barber shop with his father. Miles is very excited, but at the same time has to be brave. Sensing his son's fear of the clippers, the Daddy encourages him to be brave and pretend that he is a giant and that the buzzing of the clippers is only a plane zooming by! Miles overcomes his fear and requests a haircut just like his father's. I wish that we had this book when my boys got their first haircut. Although it was not in a barbershop, I think it would have helped them overcome their initial fear of the buzzing clippers.
