books also serve a purpose in addition to teaching literacy. they can educate the senses, supplementing the visual and auditory eye and ear in understanding another culture, both in the land of their birth and the land of their adoption. déesse and her friends are perfectly comfortable learning about food and drink, fashion and music, technology and society from their parents’ books.

as a child, i did not miss these books at all. they were staples at my motherless table, packed and waiting for me at public libraries, and recommended by peers and educators everywhere. but as a child, none of that ever really registered. i knew, of course, that the characters were strong, independent girls. what i did not know was that the books taught me, and were designed to teach me, about love and trust and friendship and loyalty and hope. now as a parent, i see the same themes once more in this excellent childrens writing project, and hope it does the same for future generations of caribbean children.

as a young girl growing up in trinidad, i also was influenced by the fictional stories that i read that the real people i knew, like me, were strong, independent and yet loving, at least by me. many of us did not know the word adolescence – we were just ladies, girls, and we knew it. in fact, most of my classmates did not know the word adolescence at all. we all viewed the world in a similar fashion. we all knew that we were strong women, both in how we looked and how we dressed. i had to do the curriculum homework, but that was the extent of my academic thinking as a child. i just did what i was told. i drank lots of water and ate plenty of fruit and vegetables. i followed the rules of the household, was obedient and did what was asked of me. and if the food was bad, the punishment was severe. the mother, a former beauty queen, used to go around in a huff, saying, i am only doing what i have to do in the world in trinidad. she and the father both were strict and they never had the patience to teach us anything. my best friend and i both knew what was right or wrong, what needed to be done. caribbean childrens literature has been a mainstay in our household as well. our children have grown up with the ladybird series, the first three boyos and carlas books, and the anacaona series. they are a part of our household now. our children always know that the authors took their time. they have been told often and often that the characters love, love, love each other. archaeological evidence indicates that the first recorded european arrival on puerto rico occurred in 1493 and this is commemorated today in san juan by the catedral nuestra señora de guadalupe, which is a fascinating experience. read more 16 picture book biographies about caribbean women 5ec8ef588b
