hey there Vishagan,

Yes i think exploring other styles of pieces like you said would be good, especially as the books will probably have thicker pages (made from recycled waste fibrous material).

When you say "perhaps you could encourage the children to create their own books in these styles for them to share with the community?" do you mean the 0-5 year olds? This could be a bit difficult, but never the less maybe we can add pages in the back of the books for notes and ideas, and imbed some sort of writting implement into the back page? Maybe using similar technology to that of an etch-a-sketch, i dont mean having a thick etch-a-sketch on back but the fact its renewable and you dont need ink or paper, and when your done you can rub it off. Hard to define haha hope you understand.

Thanks for your input!

Daniel commented on Saving the infants from wood smoke

Yea i remember reading about the effects of smoke, and how some children really struggle to sleep at night and continuously cough!

On my page, the team has come up with the concept of JAMBO. I really think it would be a great opportunity to include your plans into one of our educational books! Maybe we can collaborate and build on eachother? Come take a look at my page and check out the teams work!

Been great read.

Daniel commented on Mother Mentors for Child Development [updated Jan 5]

hey there, I was reading and liked the idea, but kept seeing you mention 'training', 'books' and 'cognitive stimulation'. The concept the team came up with on my page is called JAMBO. We are a service/process that creates a product, which is a collection of educational books for parents to learn from, but presented as a story with toy pieces for the children to enjoy and perhaps learn from too!

I was reading your idea and thought that maybe we could team up as it seems that our concept could be perfect for your idea.

We dont just create a collection of books, but we involve the local people in as many points of the process as possible, designing the layout, designing the characters and colours, getting the relevant information that is unique for that community/city/country, putting that information in a story that is fun, engaging and creative, getting the books printed, having them packages with the relevant equipment ad-ons, etc.

We want to create a scheme that utilises the local people in every step of the creation process so that they can be equipped, and then potentially use those skills later on in life in other areas.

Come check us out and its been a pleasure reading!
