New colour and learn book by Amuseum Naturalis!

There’s a brand new colour and learn book, all about nature and made just for kids! The book was launched last month at Amuseum Naturalis in French Quarter, where the Les Fruits de Mer association held a special event where kids got to colour, decorate themed fabric bags, and meet the author, Ms. Jenn Yerkes.

The book is called “Soualiga Creatures” and is all about the incredible insects and other little creatures to be found on the island of St. Maarten. This is the latest in the association’s popular Soualiga series of multi-lingual “colour and learn” books for young children. Earlier books in the series include “Soualiga Island”, “Soualiga Sea” and “Soualiga Birds”. Future topics planned for the series include St. Martin plants and heritage.

The book stars some of the tiniest of St. Martin’s amazing animals, especially insects. It is a great look at the fascinating little critters that fly, crawl, glide and jump around on this island. There is a visual guide on the back cover with vivid colour photos of all the featured creatures. This encourages kids to learn what they look like, and spot them in the wild. Inside, you’ll find a colouring page for each creature with its name in all four languages that are widely spoken on the island: English, French, Spanish and Dutch. Each one also has a page where they can practice writing the names of the animal.

It’s fun to learn the names of different animals in other languages, plus, for kids whose parents speak another language, it’s a nice way for them to enjoy this activity book together.

The book is also available as a free download from at, and for purchase on worldwide. Teachers and youth group leaders interested in copies are encouraged to contact Les Fruits de Mer at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
