A cute picture book about aliens who love underpants! These aliens do not have underpants in their home plant, so they come down to Earth to get some for themselves. This story is a bilingual book in both English and Haitian Creole and written in the form of poems.

A picture book that takes the reader through the sounds of the seasons. This book contains rhyming, alliteration, and onomatopoeic words which would be great for an English learner to not only hear but read as well. This story is a bilingual book in both English and Haitian Creole, with beautifully drawn pictures.

When Night Falls, Kric! Krac!: Haitian Folktales by Liliane Louis Edit

51sbUcsg5sL. SX326 BO1,204,203,200

An English book written by a Haitian author that includes 28 native Haitian tales which are arranged by subject and theme. This book would be fantastic for your Haitian Creole speaking student to read a familiar story in English, as well as allowing your native English speaking students to read a story from the culture of your Haitian Creole speaking student. This book would work wonderfully for read-aloud as the stories are not too long.

A Flag for Haiti by Joanne Gregg Edit


An English historical fiction picture book about a young Haitian girl named Katy who has been given the task to create the first Haitian flag. This book is written by a Haitian author who was tired of not seeing Haitians represented in literature. This book would be wonderful for all students as it talk about the creation of the Haitian flag in a way that all children will enjoy listening to.
