Winds Around the Caribbean is a multicultural smorgasbord of childhood adventures, rich in sibling interaction, family solidarity, and friendly creativity. This book vividly relates the long-forgotten oral folklore of story-telling as an educational tool.

In this story, four neighboring siblings attempt to explore the high seas, much to their dismay, disappointment, and near disas
