Sand Safari Book
For Sand Safari 2018, Surfers Paradise Alliance along with Surfers Paradise State School bring you a brand new educational book, drawing upon the upcoming sporting events taking place on the Gold Coast!
Written by Sunshine Coast mother and daughter team, Margo and Emma Gibbs, Henry and Ethan’s Neptune’s Games Adventure follows the exploits of characters Ethan the Octopus, Henry the Emperor Angelfish and friends as they train hard for the upcoming Neptune’s Games. Illustrated in popular locations in Surfers Paradise, the values of the storyline align with state teaching curriculum for Prep to Year 2.
What is particularly valuable about this book for students is that it tells a story based in their environment, allowing them to instantly relate to the setting. It can also help to provide students with a deeper understanding of arts and culture as well as opening their eyes to the spectacular marine environment that surrounds our region. Themes of mateship, safety and respect are woven into this joyous and humorous story.
You can get your hands on a free copy of the book at all Sand Trail locations, at the merchandise marquee during Sand Safari Arts Festival and the book reading sculpt on the foreshore.
