Picture Books for Publishing Children’s Books

 

And we’re here in the central library we have been teams working really hard to create 10 children’s books in 12 hours. All of the children’s. Books are going to be open licenses that we can easily translate edits and distribute them to get them into the hands of kit for cash.

The projects to put more children’s books in the world, and if we want to make them properly accessible, we have to be able to print them cheaply and share them widely and translate them easily. And so we ‘

Ve got a whole lot of volunteers, making books for 12 hours and by the end of today we’ll, have a lot of open license? Children’s books that we can print and give away. We’re here today. Is a kind of grand experiment in trying to impact your help out the literacy crisis in in some way in South Africa? So I mean our aim and goal today is to create books that can be used to support other illiteracy initiatives that are doing such good work in Cape Town and the Western Cape in South Africa as a whole.

We have a big vision that we would like every child to earn a hundred books by the age of five, and if we want to do that, we ‘ Ve got to make a lot a lot of books that we can that we can very cheaply print and give away, because in South Africa, wouldn’t get more children.

Reading at a young age will grow. A bigger publishing literary industry will have smaller leaders more entrepreneurial business people, any general will be a better society for it. I really believe in Arthur’s, vision of creating a great quantity of books the children can access.

I love the idea of letting this country with children burgers so that creating a reading culture with teamwork, I thinking about getting books up to children in the world and you know, being able to read and have access to books, is an incredible thing that all of Us take for granted, so i’m.

Having some child somewhere will read our book one day and really enjoy. Personally, I love the idea. I think that every mouth needs a lot of books and as many books as possible, and these books need to be relevant and South African and their needs to be accessible.

First of all, this is a great way to go about doing that. We’re, hoping that we’ll, be able to expand book dash onto a kind of year long scale. Hopefully that will operate nationally. So we can have artists, designers and writers from around the country contributing towards stories that will influence the lives of children from here.

We have to grow from strength to strength and do a lot more events producing a lot more books. We’re, going to be involving a lot of sponsors in printing books, starting with our first printed book, giveaway on the 18th of July.

On my dupa day after that, hopefully we’ll, be giving away a lot more books in a lot more places all around South Africa
