by Krystel Armand


Krystel Armand is the creative force behind La Petite Petra.


An author, entrepreneur, and mom, Krystel created the book series with her own children in mind, wanting to teach them soft skills and cultural and personal values.

Krystel believes that being bilingual opened many doors for her throughout her life and contributed significantly to her cognitive development and, as such, heavily promotes bilingualism through her work. Her books are currently available in English, Spanish, French, Haitian Creole, and Portuguese.

Because she believes ethnic diversity makes life that much richer, the characters in her books are all ethnically diverse.
