Caribbean Dream by Rachel Isadora is a beautiful multicultural book set in the Caribbean. It is an easy to read-aloud book with rhythmic structure. Perfect for my up-and-coming reader who is only 5 yrs. old.
I love this book, and how my son can relate to it, and identify with the children in the illustrations. He can see someone that looks like him, and how wonderful it is to live in the Caribbean.

Although this book is set in the Caribbean islands we can not say it’s from a specific island. We looked at the map of the islands, and he quickly found Puerto Rico. We talked about the surrounding islands on how they are all different in size but alike at the same time. It is clear to me from our conversation that I have done my part in planting the Latin and Caribbean heritage seed in our son.
This book just reinforces our love for our Caribbean island.
