MAAHMG Children’s Reading Circle with Rose McGee

Saturday, January 20, 2024
Join us and kick off the new year for our first in-person Reading Circle of 2024,
with Rose McGee’s new book, “Can’t Nobody Make a Sweet Potato Pie like Our Mama!,”
written by Rose McGee and illustrated by Christopheraaron Deanes.
On Saturday, January 20th, Rose McGee will be reading her book from 11:30am – 1:00pm at the Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery.


About the book:
In Rose McGee’s charming picture book (3-7 age range), young Marie and Landon think that their grandmother, “Mama,” makes the best sweet potato pies ever. The twins sometimes wonder if there might be some magic involved. Neighbors dealing with bad news or struggling with loss stop by for a slice. Sharing the pies—their sweet aroma, their familiar texture—in Mama’s warm home brings them comfort. The twins marvel at the neighbors’ transformation. Maybe, the twins realize, the magic isn’t in the pies. Maybe it’s in their mama.
