What nine or ten year old is not intrigued with stories of fun and adventure!
Travelling from British Columbia, Canada, to the Caribbean Island was like travelling from one end of the world to another; and going from an urban setting to a rural village was equally traumatic. However, the boredom that Justin feared he would experience in this strange rustic village without electricity or televisions was now being replaced by a feeling of excitement.
“Coconut Fun” tells entertaining short stories about Canadian city boy, Justin, and his Caribbean country cousin, Nate, while teaching facts about the coconut palm.
Listen to ten year old country boy, Nate, and his unique was of speaking. “Me will teach yo’ lots of coconut fun before the holidays are over.”
The stories are real, drawn from the author’s own childhood experiences during the late 40’s and 50’s.
