Our mission to increase the number of Creole/English bilingual Mother Tongue Books has expanded into the world of board books for our youngest students! We partnered with Star Bright Books, a small publisher of bilingual board books, to translate 5 more of their books into Creole. These books have been a tremendous hit in our early grades. The students read them with their older grade reading buddies and independently. The books are also used in our 0-3 program to promote parents to read to their children. Early childhood literacy is becoming more colorful each year. We thank the W. K. Kellogg Foundation for making is possible for FoM to print 500 of each title to distribute to all our partner schools and make available to the increasing number of schools wanting to learn the Matènwa way.
