The Two Oceans Aquarium is proud to announce the release of our third Puppet Stories book, I Live Smart, published in association with the City of Cape Town.
These books, and their accompanying puppet shows (which are presented here at the AfriSam Children’s Play Centre as well as at schools in and around the Cape) have proven to be exceptionally popular with children between the ages of 3 and 9. They are for sale at R55 at the Aquarium’s ticket office and through the online shop, and are available in English and Afrikaans.
The Puppet Stories books are written and illustrated by Marguerite Venter, who is in charge of our Puppet Stories programme.
In I Live Smart, Beauty and Geo – along with the Aquarium’s mascots Silver the Shark, Terminator the Seal, Samantha the Penguin and Balo the Clownfish – teach us about living smartly through lessons about waste, water, electricity and biodiversity. The interactive dialogue allows children to become part of the storyline and to learn valuable lessons when it comes to smart, environmentally friendly living.
Like its predecessors, I Live Smart includes fun ”Brain Tickles” (educational games), “Mascot Messages” (take-home ideas for living smartly) as well as ideas for “Playing Outside”. Colourful and endearing, it’s a must-have for any bookshelf.
