Coomacka Island is an Afro-Caribbean fantasy world developed by co-creators Don P. Hooper and myself. A series of storybooks have been created and are available for purchase on the website. The website includes online games, interactive read-along stories, and printable coloring pages. Young children are drawn to the vivid pictures. Older children find the stories fun to read and enjoy the educational value of learning new words and meaning behind the Swahili names. Adults enjoy folk-tales based in a Caribbean setting and find the stories to be a unique way to motivate children to read.
