Wrap2gether Phonics Series
Knowledge in rural Africa is often passed from generation to generation through rote recitation rather than through the art of reading. I believe reading enables students to become self-reliant learners. With most education research indicating cultural respect empowers student learning, I sought culturally relevant early readers. Finding none, I wrote and illustrated a phonics series designed to highlight Ghana’s landscape. Although highly stylized, each page features children with smiling brown faces dressed in their adorable pink and blue uniforms, set amidst the familiar setting of their own schoolyard. In the background, a butterfly-filled tree and rising sun symbolize promise and hope. By respecting and validating the students’ own experiences, I hope to motivate further learning and build cross-cultural trust.
Please choose whether you prefer the proceeds benefit Mancona International School or JustWorld International. Books can be customized upon request.
