20 New Papiamento Children’s Books Published

12 01 2018

20 New Papiamento children’s books were developed by the Language Project of the Department of Education in Aruba for use in the primary schools and the exam classes of the secondary schools. Papiamento is a creole language exclusively spoken on the islands of Aruba, Curaçao and Bonaire (Caribbean).

A group of local collaborators, but also internacional persons, wrote, translated, illustrated and edited the material. A varied offer of original works and three translations was the result.

The themes of the books were selected according to the age group. For the primary schools the topics are: friendship, bullying, nature conservation, sports, stamina and teambuilding. Topics selected for the teens are: peer pressure, love, social life, teen pregnancy and drug abuse.

Authors who collaborated are: Desiree Croes, Lorena Boekhoudt-Almary, Beth Briñez Albertsz, Danielle Janga, Marvis Engelhardt, Shaila Vrolijk, Desiree Correa, Yolanda Croes, Diana Marchena-Martes, Ria Arrindell-Broeks, Gina Ramsbottom, Diana Lebacs (Curaçao), Loekie Morales (St. Maarten) and Sally Green (England).

The books are not for sale, but are available at the local library in Aruba.
