The launch of 6 new culturally relevant picture books!

On Wednesday Nov 2nd Grenada Schools Inc launched 6 new picture books written and illustrated by Grenadians!!!!!
I'm so proud to be a part of this initiative, this has been quite a journey, from facilitating and teaching the new illustrators with the awesome Catia Chien to working on one of the titles myself to finally seeing the finished products!!! It is so important for children of colour to have culturally relevant books and because of this initiative all kids in our primary schools will have access to these books along with the school libraries being built for them by GSI!
A big thank you to the Sherwood Family, the board of Trustees and Room to Read for supporting this amazing project!
Because these are non profit organizations the books unfortunately will not be for sale BUT Mt Zion Children's Library will soon have copies available, so go and get your library card!
