“Kwanzaa with MawMaw” is a story about Jalen and Layla who have a special visit in New Orleans with their beloved Grandmother (MawMaw Birdie Blake) over the winter school break. MawMaw teaches Jalen and Layla all about Kwanzaa with its daily celebrations, and she prepares many delicious African-American foods for them to try at the Kwanzaa Feast (Karamu) on December 31st. In the end, Jalen and Layla learn Kwanzaa’s seven guiding principles from MawMaw, and much more, as well as having a wonderful holiday vacation. Of course, they also want to wish you a Joyous Kwanzaa too! Each book page (there are a total of 26) contains a colorful picture that follows the events of this special holiday story with Jalen, Layla, and MawMaw. I hope you and your children will enjoy!
