A STORY ABOUT AFIYA by James Berry and Anna Cunha is a masterwork that should be included in every library and home bookshelf. Click here to purchase the book.

As an educator and therapist, I'm often called upon to use books like this one as an anchor to engage kids and open more challenging or abstract conversations.

To that end, I've created a 33p companion packet of activities so that after they read the book, they can imagine, remember, and learn new skills.

The packet includes:

Biography of James Berry

Fact sheet about Jamaica

Fact sheet about Swahili and a few beginner phrases

Drawing and Writing activities on:

Imagination and Memory

Remembering and Forgetting

Coping with Emotions

Mindfulness and Meditation

and a word search.
