Written by SAMUEL NARH | Illustrated by JO LORING-FISHER
As the seasons turn, Maisie rides her bull in and out of Dada’s tall tales. Her Mama wears linen and plays the viola. Her Dada wears kente cloth and plays the marimba. They come from different places, but they hug her in the same way. And most of all, they love her just the same. A joyful celebration of a mixed-race family and the love that binds us all together.

My family really enjoys reading Maisie’s Scrapbook before bedtime. The illustrations are beautiful and leave a lot to the readers imagination. Our favorite part is “They nag her in the same way.” It’s simply wonderful!
Do you need a book that your family will enjoy? Maisie's Scrapbook fits the bill. You will enjoy the story about Maisie and her family.
Excellent and stunning illustration, beautifully written children’s book which is culturally diverse and educational.
Emotive illustrations show the cultural richness of having a mixed race family. The writing and imagery show how expressions of parental love are infused with personal meaning and this makes Maisie's scrapbook a celebration of a mixed heritage family and the unique expressions of love that are shared.
A beautifully written book with exceptional illustrations. A book that should be a part of any home library.
