Mr. Macaw Gives a History Lesson

ByNorma Jean

I have thought of how best to introduce my Granddaughter to the history of Guyana and I hope I came up with a fun way that all children will enjoy. I attempted to tell a brief history of Guyana through the eyes of a Macaw who is the one of the longest living birds of the Amazon and Guyana rainforest. I have deemed this story as fiction because I worried about the accuracy of some of the written material to avoid challenges. Macaw tells how many changes his Grandparents and Great Grandparent have seen over the years and pass it all down to him as bed time stories. Mr. Macaw tells the history in 16 chapters, which I thought would be enough to read one chapter at a time to my little one. I want her to enjoy what she hears and learn to love her grand parent’s heritage and culture. I wanted to stimulate the curiosity in her to want to visit Guyana and learn from what she heard in her childhood and to enjoy her visit there because she knows the history.
