My daughter loves this book. I had to read it to her 3 times. Now she has me looking all over for the doll that goes along with it. We are waiting for the other books in this soon to be series.

My mother and her sisters were born in Bronzeville (Chicago, IL) in the early 1920s. My maternal Grandfather came to Chicago (first generation Great Migration) in 1918 from Prentiss, Mississippi and my maternal Grandmother came to Chicago (first generation through Ellis Island) in 1919 from Coleyville, Jamaica. I developed this children's series to reflect my mother's and our family's history, that part of Chicago's history which has been sparsely documented...and often, misunderstood. As a Biracial child growing up in the 50s and 60s, there were many times I found it difficult to identify with any one group, and more times than not, seemed to blend into them all. Perhaps that is why I decided to bridge this gap of cultural and racial misnomers with books about African-Americans. Through this series, The Adventures of Minnie, I hope everyone will come to relive the magic and frolick with its protagonist, a lively and spirited character who, though she is a rag doll, imbues the essence and charm of 'childhood'. Surrounded by toys of various forms and personalities---the stories and characters are limitless because we venture into a world that allows us to experience the wonders of our imagination...and travel to a special place...through the many adventures Minnie finds herself a part of.
