We all know that South Africa has terrible road safety stats.
The Minister of Transport Mrs Diplou Peters is always saying that children need to learn about road safety. It’s true. They do. The Minister of Basic Education, Mrs Angie Motshekga is always saying that children must read more. That’s true too – they should.
Here we are… pleasing two ministers with one book!
Sibo Looks Right is a book that contains all the rules of the road, including cycling – in a fun, easy to read manner.
Best of all – you don’t have to take our word for it – you can click on the link and read the book for yourself. Free!
Our plan is to get as many companies and people to pledge books – once we have reached our target of 3000 books (we’d love to get more than this too) we will ask people to honour their pledges and deposit the corresponding amount so that Lets Look Publishers can print these books and we can distribute them to the children.
Science Centres in South Africa have kindly agreed to help with distributing the books.
Here’s the crunch – we’d really like to do this BEFORE Easter!
So we need you to dash off and pledge a book – or two – or as many as you want to.
Challenge other people to pledge books too.
Of course, if you pledge more than 50 books we can put your name/logo in the back of the book. If you pledge 1000 books – we can put your logo in the front of the book. There are great advertising and marketing aspects to sponsoring books.
If you read Sibo Looks Right you will see that Nash Nissan sponsored a large quantity of money towards our initial crowdfunding campaign and so their logo was featured in the front of the book. If you look on the back cover – there are more logos and names – these are all the lovely people who helped make this book happen in the first place.
Now we need to print more books and get them out to schools and children – FREE.
Let’s make this happen. Please! Pledge now.
A million thanks
PS – The Sibo Series is already being read in schools and libraries around the country. In fact, The North West Province Education Department has just ordered more than 500 each of 10 Sibo titles and they are being delivered as we speak!
