Waa Gwaan Jimi it's Jungle fun time


Jamaican boy Jimi is on an adventure in the jungle, far away from his island home. To his huge surprise, his new animal friends decide to make him feel right at home by using a delightfully familiar greeting: "Waa Gwaan Jimi " This means "Hello " or "What's up?" in Jimi's native Jamaican language. This familiar greeting signals a warm embrace of Jimi's Jamaican culture by his new animal friends and encourages him on his quest to explore their jungle home.

Waa Gwaan Jimi: Welcome to the Jungle is a fun story for children 3-9 years old, which encourages social awareness through celebrating different, unfamiliar cultures and environments. You will encounter a fearless and plucky boy named Jimi, thirteen jungle animals, bilingual English-Jamaican text that rhymes, and a bonus alphabet guide to the Jamaican language.

In this beautifully illustrated story, Jamaican boy Jimi goes on an adventure in the jungle for the first time, where to his surprise, the animals greet and welcome him in his native Jamaican language.

When the jungle animals welcome Jimi with a Jamaican greeting, it makes Jimi feel right at home in the jungle, and underscores for child readers how crossing the language barrier can enable us to be friends with all types of people from different countries, cultures, and backgrounds.

This book promotes tolerance towards diversity among young readers while engaging them in a fun imaginative world with jungle animals who know how to speak the Jamaican language.
