Jamaican Mi Seh Mi ABC's

Jamaican Mi Seh Mi ABC's is a children's book written by Valrie Kemp-Davis and illustrated by Michael Talbot. It takes the classical alphabet book approach and puts a cultural spin to it, weaving aspects of the Jamaican culture into each page.

"So if you think Jamaica is simply coconuts, palm trees, dreadlocks, Drake’s dance song, “Controlla” and Rhianna’s hit tune, “Work”... THEN you’ll be in for a pleasant treat and so much more! This ABC book is the voice and heart of eleven year old Carradice. Though Midwest made and straight out of East Chicago, don’t get it twisted. This young gyal was very much born Jamerican! You are cordially being invited to a JamRock lyrical, patois rhythmic adventure.
Join in as Carradice and Deejay Rewind schools you from A to Z on her father’s culture, foods, heroes, traditions, customs, music... Everyting Mon! She promises that by the time you can say, The End, you will love “Yard” like cooked food and have a greater appreciation for the land of wood and water!
Nuff Respect!!!"
