CALLALOO, A JAZZ FOLKTALE::

I love this book! Makes me so nostalgic!

Growing up in Guyana, I was often told "jumbie" (ghost) stories just before bed time. Lots of the characters in the Guyanese jumbie stories resemble those in Callaloo: A Jazz Folktale.

In Callaloo: A Jazz Folktale, Winston, a young inner city boy who goes to Brooklyn, NY to get ingredients for his Aunt's callaloo dinner when he magically is transported to the Caribbean island of Tobago. Here, he encounters mythical folkloric characters that roam the island. Winston's fears and fantasies fuse together as his dreams become reality. He must find his way out of this haunting paradise to make it back home. (For Ages 3-7).

If you are lucky, you can often catch Nabeeh Bilal giving impromptu entertainment with Winston (puppet) in the streets of Washington, DC!

Copies are either autographed by the illustrator Nabeeh Bilal or the author Marjuan Canady.

ONOMATOPOEIAS ARE FUN:

Reading and storytelling can be more fun when you use onomatopoeias! Woof goes the dog, Tweet goes the bird, Mooooo goes the cow! 

The back of tee has the words  "Woof, Flutter, Clank"

This tee is made from certified organic cotton that is grown, knitted and sewn in the USA. I then screen print and block print with non-toxic water based fabric paint.

Storytelling, whether reading from a book or just reciting and acting out a story, is more FUN with onomatopoeias! MOOO goes the cow, Choo-choo goes the train, Woof goes the doggie!


The back of the tee says " Woof! Flutter! Clank!". Reading and storytelling is a wonderful bonding time for the family and a perfect opportunity for self-expression. My high school English teacher, Mrs. Blake from Queens College, Guyana, was very expressive, and she made sure we knew what an onomatopoeia was and how to spell the word! Lol. It was one of the first words I taught my daughter in her toddler years. Thank you Mrs. Blake!

The definition of an onomatopoeia, as described by Webster's Dictionary is: 

1. the naming of a thing or action by a vocal imitation of the sound associated with it (such as buzz, hiss)

2the use of words whose sound suggests the sense 

  • a study of the poet's onomatopoeia
