Kreyòl Books–Kreyòl and French

The Australian Rotary Kreyòl Writing Project, a Rotary International collaboration in Australia, the United States, and Haiti, led to the development of a series of culturally authentic picture books to encourage young readers to learn to read in their own Haitian Kreyòl language. Each book has a different upbeat Australian author and a delightful Haitian artist. An experienced Haitian editor culturally adapted these stories and translated them. The books are printed in Haiti. Books will be distributed at free or low cost in underserved areas under the advisement of Haitian literacy and community leaders, Rotary and Rotaract Clubs. Each book is bilingual–also translated into French.
