THE NITTY-GRITTY

Target audience and ages:

  • Indonesian kids aged 7+ who speak Bahasa Indonesian
  • Kids aged 10+ who speak English as their second language
  • 7+ year old kids who speak English as their first language
Content:

The PDF version contains the 16 page story, photos that I've taken during my time in Indonesia , as well as 7 pages of activities. 

The paper copy will be soft-cover, full colour with illustrations done by Fabianus Bayu, a.k.a Shirohyde. Your kids will love his beautiful illustration style as much as I do.  This will be available in English and Bahasa Indonesian.

There is a current lack of books and resources available to educate kids about the environment. My book has text, photos and activities designed to boost your child's creative and critical thinking skills as well as their English language skills. Your child will learn about the ocean, Balinese culture and one of the most pressing environmental issues that we face, and that they will inherit.

My ultimate goal is to be able to give Indonesian children access to my book, regardless of their socio-economic status, so I will be working with green-books.org, amongst others, to facilitate distribution within Indonesia.

Your donations will enable me to print the books and get the message out there.

I am currently researching my publishing options so that I can get the best quality deal out there.

Distribution: I have added postage costs on top of your donation, because the hardest bit of Kickstarter campaigns is often delivery.

    The Starfish

    What would the ocean be without starfish? They're the staple diet of harlequin shrimps (yes, you should google them!)
    Fact: when a starfish loses a leg, it can regenerate and grow another one. Pretty cool.
    A very enthusiastic high five (real or virtual depending on where you live).

    The Turtle

    Turtles are slow on land but fast in the water. They are great freedivers and some travel very far. Others, like the ones off Gili Meno, like chilling in the same place every day.
