SANParks HR: Pretoria region has launched a project to raise funds for counter poaching. They are selling a new children's book and receive R 20 for each book they sell.

The book is available in both Afrikaans and English, and is filled with sound nature based children's stories.

This is such a stunning book. I am using it in my classes and the children really enjoy their books. It is ideal for teaching them about nature. Because this is not a school book, they can't wait to read and turn the pages to find out what happens to Loxi.

This is an ideal book for all ages. Young children are captivated by Loxi's adventures and the stunning drawings. The older children learn interesting facts, it is also a good tool to teach spelling, search reading, as a listening comprehension and a fun way to get the kids reading again.

This Loxi book will make a stunning birthday or Christmas present for any child. And is also a good reward for working hard at school.... and the fun part: we as adults can also learn more about nature
:lol:

Please support the Pretoria Honorary Rangers region - we are hoping to make a difference and help to generate funds for counter poaching

Just some feed back on the sales of this book. To date Pretoria region has managed to sell more than 40 of these books as part of this project. Well done on all of you who have purchased one!!

I wonder who is enjoying it more: the children or their parents??? :lol:

The aim is also to get the kids reading again... but even some adults who really don't like reading, have managed a peek at this book, and can't put it down - well done Loxi..... :clap:

Please support us, I know we are making a difference - every cent makes a difference.

My little brother just received the book yesterday, now we're fighting over it coz I wanna read it too.
Elder sisters have rights too you know. :(
It's a truly wonderful book. And I found it so simple to get it even though I was nowhere near pretoria. The hands-on help was AMAZING.
Thanks so much for 'showing me the way forward'. :lol: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :thumbs_up:
