Annotation

A girl describes how each person in the family has hair that looks and acts different: Papa's like a broom, Kiki's like fur, and Mama's with the sweet smell of bread before it's baked. Desde el corte de pelo tipo cepillo de papá, hasta la espesa cabellera de Kiki o el pelo resbaloso de Nenny, ésta es una familia con todo tipo de pelo. Y luego está mamá, cuyo pelo tiene un olor dulce como el pan. El pelo de mamá es único e incomparable.
