Sunday, May 1 @ 12:00 pm
212 NE 59th Terrace, Miami, FL 33137 United States
Edwidge Danticat’s My Mommy Medicine is a picture book about the comfort and love a mama offers when her child isn’t feeling well. Award-winning author Edwidge Danticat’s rich and lyrical text envelops the reader in the security of a mother’s love, while debut illustrator Shannon Wright’s vibrant art infuses the story with even more warmth.
With M.J. Fievre’s The Ocean Lives There, our little ones experience the adventures of a young girl who discovers her mama’s Haitian culture through a magical red-blue door. Young readers take a colorful journey into exploring the importance of one’s roots; they develop a deeper understanding of Haitian heritage and broaden their worldview. On May 1st, M.J. Fievre also presents Haiti A to Z, an alphabet book with a Haitian twist. As children journey through Haitian traditions, they learn English and Creole words through catchy rhymes and beautiful illustrations.
Free copies of the books will given to children in attendance, while supplies last, courtesy of Books for Free, program of the Miami Book Fair in partnership with The Children’s Trust.
