My Haiti: Gabou, A Child's Story LITE Download

Alo, hi! My name is Gamenlie, but you can call me Gabou. My parents, Manman and Papa, and I live in a village near the home of my grandparents and my great-grandmother. Its fun to have so many relatives nearby, especially when its time to celebrate. Come, join me!

So begins this delightful photo story app that introduces young readers to a life similar to their own and yet fascinatingly different that of Gabou, a young Haitian girl. Using photos rather than illustrations and first-person narration, Gabou invites readers to join her as celebrates her uncles wedding, feeds her familys pig, and plays during recess at school, among other activities.

Experience cultural immersion for the youngest reader AND make an international friend!

By highlighting what our children have in common with others no matter where they live, this book lays the foundation for cultural understanding and openness among the youngest readers.

For children 3+ years.

How We Support Haiti: The photos for this story were taken in November 2009. In January 2010 Haiti experienced a devastating earthquake. Valdo and Gabou from the My Haiti e-book series, as well as their families, survived the quake. However, their daily lives have changed, as have those of most Haitians. One Globe Kids aims to help their community, and others, create a better future for Haitis children. Thank you.

Look for new stories in the One Globe Kids e-book series of international iPhone, iPad, and iTouch apps for young readers.
