Kate Boyes - Hero In My Hood Books
We make story activity books to encourage children to be courageous and kind. Our books are very cheap - just R10 - and they are fun! We get sponsorship for education programmes, so the books are distributed in their thousands.
Hearing the cry of our environment we jumped into action and have produced a book on Plastic Pollution to get the kiddos to pick up litter, reduce, reuse & recycle!
Petco, Plastics SA, and the FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology have given us advice and guidance. The Sustainable Seas Trust and the Two Oceans aquarium, among others, have given us the thumbs up.
It has taken us a year to get this book 'just right' and we will be going to print very soon. We will have a free downloadable Teachers' guide on our site that will include extra information & lesson plans. We have had an adventure putting it together, meeting such wonderful people who are so invested in combating plastic pollution. We have learnt how important community cleanups are and how eager & willing the children are to learn. All it takes is showing them the right way and motivating them. ''Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.'' Mandela.
