Nashida: Visits the Mississippi State Capitol
By Meredith Coleman McGee

The ‘Nashida’ character was illustrated by Loretha Wallace.
Eight-year-old Nashida shares stories about the legacy of four former Mississippi governors including Andrew Longino (1900-1904); James Kimble Vardaman (1904-1908); Edmond Favor Noel (1908-1912); and Earl Leroy Brewer (1912-1916) with young readers. Nashida also describes the responsibilities of lawmakers in the context of her tour of the Mississippi State Capitol. Readers will learn how a bill becomes law and historical information about the state of Mississippi. Readers and learners will walk away with an understanding of how state laws impact theirs lives and the people who live in their communities.

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.

NOTE BY A DESCENDANT OF MOSES “CAP” MEREDITH
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.
