Maisie’s Scrapbook by Samuel Narh
Maisie's Scrapbook Children's Book by Samuel Narh
Follow the adventures of a young girl in this wonderful celebration of unconditional and universal love of a mixed-race family, as you follow her wild and spirited journey through the seasons. This book is a celebration of all the joy of a multiratial family, Maisie a brown-skinned little girl with afro hair who has the best of many worlds. Her West African Dada who plays the marimba, takes her on wild flights of fancy and adventures of flying spiders and turtles in the night sky, whilst her white viola playing Mama provides her sanctuary and keeps her grounded. A positive story that celebrates our differences, whilst acknowledging the universal language of love.
Maisie’s scrapbook is a powerful expression of the love that unites us all. Written by Samuel Narh who is originally from Ghana, now living in Ohio, this award winning book embraces the comfort and confidence a child finds within an all-loving family. The beautiful illustrations of Jo Loring-Fisher present cultural images through the clever interpretation of mixed-media art, creating a portrait of love and unity.
