This is a wonderful and engaging children’s book. I found myself reading it in the voice of eight-year-old Nashida. Author Meredith Coleman McGee makes reading history fun again.

This was a very informational children’s book narrated by an eight-year-old fictional character. I have been in Mississippi all my life and didn’t know all the history in this book. The Moses Meredith Cultural Arts Book Series will be an asset to teach children culture and history.

  1. Dear Meredith,

    I read and enjoyed the book very much. Having mom and dad along for the ride, makes Nashida’s story more interesting. In particular, I like the way you deal with the racist issues and Jim Crow. Any kid who reads this book will receive an outstanding civics and history lesson about the State of Mississippi. Any adult who reads this book will receive an outstanding civics and history lesson. As usual, you bring manners and decency to Nashida’s story. Respect for all people is emphasized, as well. Donald Trump could benefit from reading this book…

    Happy Sunday,

    I really enjoyed this book, it’s perspective, and history. Loved how young Nashida share her passion and love for civics, government, and history. Well done to author Meredith McGee. Waiting to read more about Nashida.

  4. Hi,
    How are you? I am interested in more info concerning publishing my copywritten work. Poetry and Children’s books.
    What is the protocol on this process? I enjoy your perspective on things.
    With much respect,

  5. DocLyne Ess Trey is excited about all of his new books. Using the time honored “Eenny Meeny Minny Mo Method, “Nashida Visits the Mississippi State Capitol” is the first of the Nashida series we are reading. We both read (alternate paragraphs) and we discussed vocabulary, Nashida’s friend Stacy’s sleepovers, boxing, watching TV during the week vs watching TV every day, and all kinds of things related to the intro we read.

    Had me thinking about The Kindergarten Chronicles and Gerry Brooks when reading with Little Ones.
