MY ISLAND AND I
The Nature of the Caribbean
Alfonso Silva Lee & Alexis Lago
Have you ever felt like an island?. . . You and the islands of the Caribbean are one and the same, along with the sea so blue, the sailing clouds, the whirling moon, the golden sun. Rainbows, giant trees, tiny tiny frogs and agile lizards are not just neighbors, but real friends and real family.
Most American and Caribbean kids are growing up on lions and tigers and bears. They have little appreciation for or understanding of the wondrous biodiversity of Caribbean islands. MY ISLAND AND I: The Nature of the Caribbean broadens that perspective.
Big, bright and happy, MY ISLAND AND I invites children to deeply feel life on a Caribbean island. How did animals and plants first get to the islands? How do they live together? This enchanting introduction to island biodiversity allows children to visualize relationships between Caribbean creatures and with the water and sky—and to see how we, too, are one with each island.
This innovative design shares 36 original watercolors of island nature and accommodates forthcoming island-specific editions, personalized in the many languages of the Caribbean.
