About the Book
Who makes the keepsakes in our homes — with what, how, and why? They’re treasured by parents. They surely don’t fall from the sky! Raisa is a lovable Spanish wondergirl from Seville, Spain who longs for answers. She’s looked in all the usual places but so far has come up short. Her luck turns with a unusual friendship and the discovery that her tablet contains extraordinary magic. Soon, Raisa finds herself poised to explore the seven corners of the globe for a learning journey like no other! Fun rhymes and vibrant colors engage children. Raisa is a new friend for fans of Dora the Explorer, Doc McStuffins, Word Girl, and others. This book is available in standard edition or signed/personalized paperback (8.5″ square) as well as ebook.

About the Dolls
Our finger puppets are produced from 100% organic cotton that’s harvested responsibly and dyed naturally. They are expertly crocheted and exported fair trade. No two finger puppets will be exactly alike. Modeled after the explorers from Tabula Raisa™ (Raisa, Ogul, Hendrix). These are a great imagination aid that ensure hours of storytelling fun. Children learn to create their own stories or act out ones from The Legend of Tabula Raisa™ (also available in various formats in this Shop). We generally will keep a batch of these puppet sets ready to ship.
This product is handmade by female artisans in Peru, South America. Times are hard in towns like Juliaca near Lake Titicaca, on the frigid Andean plateau 12,500 feet above sea level. Yet, mothers continue to make whimsical animal toys like this for their children and for export around the world. Puppet knitting has been popular in this region for many generations. Your purchase helps these remarkable women to earn a livelihood. The designs are a Tabula Raisa™ exclusive, modeled after the trio of explorers in The Legend of Tabula Raisa™.
