Try Look! Bilingual Pidgin-English Picture Book

Educational materials using Pidgin are scarce. Here is one you can get for free as a printable e-book through Hawaii Review.

Try Look has local pictures and elementary level dialogue. It can be used to show the differences in construction between Pidgin and English, so children learn the distinction in a positive way.

The author, Dr. Lorna Holmes, is an ELL PTT at Kaʻiulani Elementary School; the consulting author, Almendro Fernandez, is a PhD student in English at UH Manoa, and a native speaker of Pidgin.
