Beyond the Yellow Door by Jane E. Ruth is a bilingual kids' adventure story. Yihana has come to stay with her aunt and uncle. A city girl from British Guyana, she is intrigued by their farm in the country. She adores spending time with the animals and has the time of her life. When her cousin tells her a story of spooky noises behind a yellow door in an abandoned farmhouse, Yihanna's curiosity is aroused, and she wants to investigate, but she's scared. When she finally overcomes her fear, she opens the door, and what a surprise she gets!
Beyond the Yellow Door by Jane E. Ruth is a wonderful kids' book with some amazing illustrations that bring the story to life before your eyes. It's written in English and Spanish and contains some useful and interesting facts about British Guyana. It is a fun story and educational, as it teaches kids about gardening, the importance of biodiversity, and the role of butterflies and ladybugs in the garden. The author clearly has a great deal of talent, and I love that it is written in two languages, widening its audience and making it more inclusive. The story also teaches kids to face their fears and not give up when everything seems against them. This book should be part of school curricula worldwide, an educational yet fun story that kids will find easy to read and learn from.
