From Cricket to Pumpkin, from Hummingbird to Yam - this is a photographic alphabet showing Jamaica in all its colourful diversity.

A perfect way to introduce children to this small and beautiful Caribbean island with a big heart.

4 - 7 Years

Paperback

Beautifully vibrant photographs ... What makes this different from similar books, and therefore special for me, is that Benjamin doesn't stick to the usual touristy sights but shows us the zinc roofs of the downtown shanty towns in Kingston, the hair plaiting and the gatherings on the veranda, which are so much a part of life at the heart of the island. A lovely introduction to Jamaica for children ... - Junior Education
