About the Book

“My Caribbean Dream” was written to create awareness and interest in the conservation and biodiversity of the land and life in the Caribbean. My colleague and co author, Dr. Sharon Burow, and I had spent many summers teaching Science and Literature Camps in Grenada. The plan to write a book which would bring awareness and education to its readers morphed into a perfect opportunity to involve children. Children were taught about the island’s resources, its need for conservation and protection, and also were involved in some initial background work of original illustrations. They also became the silhouettes in the illustrations. The purpose of “My Caribbean Dream” is to educate and empower children to protect the future of their island and to cherish its beauty and life. All of nature, in all places of the world, depends on its caretakers!
