$7.29

Everyone has a favorite relative. For Sarah Jean, it’s her Uncle Jed. Every Wednesday night he comes over to her house to give her daddy a haircut and a shave. He’s not allowed to cut Sarah Jean’s hair, but he can run the clippers along the back of her neck, pretending to cut her hair, and spread lotion on her neck so she smells wonderful.
  But what makes Uncle Jed extra special is his dream. One day he’s going to open his own barbershop with shiny sinks, real barber chairs, and outside, a bit, tall, red-and-white barber pole. No matter what setbacks he faces – from Sarah Jean’s emergency operation to the bank failures of the Great Depression – Uncle Jed hangs on to his dream. Someday he is going to twirl Sarah Jean around in the chair of his very own barbershop! © 28 pages
