About the author
Claudette Ubekha Charles was born in St. Lucia where she grew up until she was about 10 years old. She then moved to Brooklyn with her family, as many island families did in those days. She was inspired to write culturally relevant children's book when she had her first child and realized that there was little or no literature that reflected the experiences of children growing up in St. Lucia. Ms. Charles believes that it is important for St. Lucian children, and other Caribbean island children, and children born in the diaspora, to be exposed to literature that reflects the experiences and culture of their ancestry. Ms. Charles also has a huge love for travel and adventure. She has traveled to many countries in the world and has a love for local literature, especially children's books. As a parent and a teacher who has taught hundreds of children to read in several countries, she fully understands the importance of literacy for all children. She therefore concluded that investing her time and resources in helping to develop literature for St. Lucian and Caribbean children was very important. This series of books is her first input to what she hopes will be a part of a much wider contribution to children's literature by writers and educators of Caribbean origin.
