MARIGOT: The association Les Fruits de Mer has published “Super Saint-Martin!”, a unique new bilingual activity book that invites young people to explore and celebrate the nature and heritage of the island of St. Martin.
The book features more than 100 pages of discovery and fun, with mazes, word games, coloring, creative writing activities, and much more. The book features more than 150 plants and animals that can be seen on St. Maarten, including some that can only be found here and nowhere else in the world!
“We hope that young people, and families on St. Maarten, will enjoy this book, during the holiday season and beyond,” said author Jenn Yerkes. “It’s important for young people to have books in their living spaces. Imagine making a word scramble with local names for birds, making up short stories about the nocturnal creatures of this island, imagining a new type of insect, or creating a beautiful floral design for a traditional dress!”
Mark Yokoyama, co-founder of Les Fruits de Mer adds, “Each activity is in English and French, so the book can also be a great tool for language learning.”
One hundred free copies of “Super St. Martin!” were donated to Amuseum Naturalis in December and will also be donated in January 2022 thanks to the sponsor Delta Petroleum.
As a reminder, Amuseum Naturalis is dedicated to highlighting the nature and heritage of St. Martin.
