Turtle and Dolphin (Penyu dan Lumba-lumba)
An innovative full color, hardback picture-story book for children, designed to introduce the concept of environmental responsibility, with a focus on making Bali’s beaches free from the plastic waste that is such a major problem for us all.
The story is written simply, and is presented in three languages, Balinese, Indonesian and English.
Reach And Teach says:
We discovered this product while doing some studying of turtles and the environment and fell in love with the idea of the book..... then began our journey to try to get a copy of it! The only place you could get this book, until now, was in Indonesia. We contacted the organization that created it and they were thrilled that we were interested in sharing it with American children. Our copies were hand carried from Bali by a volunteer!
The book is fabulous..... a great story, incredible illustrations, quirky humor, and it even has a board game on the back! Children and adults will learn about ways we create and ways we can relieve pollution and the impact junk has on sea creatures.
We recommend this as a read-aloud book for children as young as three and older than us.
About Clean Bali Series:
Clean Bali Series was started by a group of concerned individuals - writer, illustrator, story-teller, architect, environmental activist and publisher - initially coming together to create the “Penyu dan Lumba-Lumba” (Turtle and Dolphin) children’s book in an effort to bring attention to the pollution problems on the island of Bali Indonesia.
This first book led to the creation of the group “Clean Bali Series” and a commitment to two more books, each dealing with the individual pollution problems specific to different environmental areas of the island of Bali.
Distribution and publication of this first hard cover book came about by the generous sponsorship of many individuals, plus that of Yayasan Pancaran Harapan Baru of Metro Indonesia and Cerebrofort of Kalbe Farma. Initially 3000 pre-purchased Turtle and Dolphin books will be given away free to local schools, with a focus on reaching those in coastal areas first, where environmental degradation due to rubbish is particularly serious. Another 2000 books will be distributed for sale in the bookshops of Bali and Jakarta and the proceeds from these sales will go into funding further editions.
The Clean Bali Series team and publisher, Saritaksu Editions, have chosen to work with Yayasan Gelombang Udara Segar (GUS) to distribute books to the schools on the island of Bali. Their current educational program in schools, to teach children about the environment, has already reached about 15,000 children in more than 200 schools and is ongoing.
Clean Bali Series has a simple mission to provide tools and information in a fun and culturally acceptable way to promote environmental awareness and social responsibility amongst the children of Bali.
