A three-time ‘Best in the World’ award-winning, children’s coloring storybook, was written in a group-writing workshop, with over 15 children, ages (6-12), contributing to the narrative. They used discussions on the process of chocolate making, local knowledge and uses of cocoa–in collaboration with the Grenada Chocolate Festival. The children are amazed at their part in the creation of a story which became a published book, and that the book can help the library they love and be enjoyed by many other children –this is one of the library’s success stories.
