Celebrating the cultures of the world!

I wanted to teach my young daughter to appreciate and respect the world around her. Since she was a baby she was surrounded by books, toys, and different educational activities. It is natural for children to learn as they play and explore their environment. As she grew and learned, I used every opportunity to introduce her to new experiences. It was then that I set out to find cultural educational materials, in particular flashcards.

Around the same time, I was re-touching the images I illustrated for my children’s book about Puerto Rico. As I worked on the book for publication I realized my illustrations could be used for the cards. Using my skills as a teacher and designer I developed the concept for MamaYala World Culture. My mission is to highlight the beauty and diversity inherent in the cultures of the world. It is my goal to promote a sense of community, admiration and respect for one another.

Thank you for taking the time to visit the MamaYala shop. We look forward to bringing you high quality educational resources. Come back to see what other cultural educational resources we will be adding to our collection.
