Every kid has fought the battle of the brush with his or her parents. Author Sheila Booth-Alberstadt explores this common challenge in her newest book, the entertaining "Maggie McNair Has Spiders in Her Hair", geared toward children ages 2-8. The delightful new release is published by SBA Books and distributed by Emerald Book Company, an imprint of Greenleaf Book Group. It is Booth-Alberstadt’s second published book, and is the first in a planned series about Maggie.
In this ingenious story filled with lessons and consequences from not wanting to brush one’s hair, and complete with lively illustrations by Norris Hall, Maggie refuses to brush her hair. After much frustration, Maggie’s mother lets her have her way. As Maggie soon discovers, there are many benefits to keeping her hair neat and tidy: it won’t become a home for spiders, for one! Maggie McNair is set to become a much-loved character in everyone’s life. Creatively told through the point of view of the spider family, the book will keep both children and adults amused to the very last page.
Maggie’s adventures have already captivated young audiences nationwide.

They were mesmerized…In fact, they drew spider ‘hair-homes’ for days!”
With the release of this book, Booth-Alberstadt has quite cleverly solved a universal problem that parents and kids face daily. Be sure to preview the book – in full color – on her website.
