I Am the Virgin Islands

By Tiphanie Yanique

Illustrated by Moses Djeli


“… I am green mountains and blue sky.
I am scratch band and steel pan…”

What does it mean to be a Virgin Islander? Author Tiphanie Yanique explores this question in her beautiful, celebratory poem, I am the Virgin Islands. Whether strolling down the streets of Frederiksted, discovering life under the sea, or lining the streets for Carnival, children will recognize, share, and most of all, embrace the special parts of life that make them who they are. The colorful and content-rich collages by Moses Djeli complement the text, creating a kaleidoscope of Virgin Island landmarks, faces and smiles. I am the Virgin Islands serves as a visual and poetic building block to better understand and appreciate the culture, history and people of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The book contains a glossary and a guide for children, teachers and parents on how to create their own “I am” projects.
