Kya Publishing Promotes Literacy During the Junior Caribbean Carnival Season Through Children's Activity Booklet
“The Junior [Caribbean] Carnival is such an exciting time of year for kids,” said Kya Publishing founder and author Stacey Marie Robinson. “While children have an opportunity to celebrate their culture through music, costume, dance, and food, I thought it was an important time to introduce an element of reading and language as well.”
The Kya Keys Book Donation Program was created to share the benefits of literacy through various rehabilitation, academic, and youth institutions on behalf of individual or organizational donors.
“We want to encourage children to continue to explore their culture in various ways. Our activity booklet uses the common words and phrases associated with carnival, as well as a worksheet for the children to write their own carnival stories,” said Robinson. “By documenting their experience with carnival, they can also share their culture with their friends and teachers year-round.”
Kya Publishing supports and celebrates urban Canadian writing, culture, and literacy by offering books, writing and editing services, literary events, and music.
