Plant se zanmi nov
A children's book written in haitian creole for the matènwa community learning center (MCLC) in haiti
"Plant se zanmi nov", translated as "plants are our friends", is a children's book made for MCLC's library. One of the focuses of MCLC is teaching in Haitian Creole, known as the mother tongue, rather than in French. This book is written in Haitian Creole, and it is about of the flora of Haiti, especially those that are edible or known to have medicinal qualities. It is my hope that children will become curious about the natural world and develop an interest in studying and harnessing the natural resources available to them.
