Well worth acquiring. -Kirkus Reviews"Beautiful illustrations show tints from blues to browns and reds gradually darkening into the night, inviting sleep. Bonnwit Kabrit is a lovely bicultural bedtime story for young children everywhere." -The Midwest Book ReviewIn this delightful, rhyming bedtime story, children journey across Haiti, saying goodnight to scenes the nation’s children would know from their daily lives. From the calico cat to the pink flowers of the bouganvillea to the sweet goat nestled beneath the starry sky, children will embark on an exciting bedtime journey as one by one they say, bonnwit.Words of Haitian Creole are sprinkled throughout the text to expand children’s vocabulary and introduce them to a new language. A helpful pronunciation guide at the back teaches readers how to say the words aloud.
