Treasure House is a series of illustrated anthologies for young readers, with stories and poems from all over the Caribbean.

Treasure House 1 is suitable for readers aged from 8–10 years old.

There is a cautionary tale about three little monkeys and another about a dog that discovers how pride comes before a fall. Grandpa tells of being swallowed by a crocodile. There are stories about being a tomboy, the ups and downs of children’s friendships, dangers of exploring a cave, looking for the Douen and finally the strange adventures of an English boy and a Trinidadian girl in the London Carnival.

Poems show children’s thoughts and feelings about new babies, wishes for the future, things that make you angry, wanting to be yourself and things to treasure. Three separate forewords are addressed respectively to the young readers, to teachers and to parents. Each story or poem is followed by questions, activities and discussion points, one to consider before the reading and others to follow after, perhaps with friends or in class groups. The authors talk about themselves and what inspired them, and the afterword encourages the young readers to look back and reflect on what they have experienced in exploring these wonderful Treasure Houses.
