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 at http://hawaiireview.org/hr-educational-materials/

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.
