“Kisisa en reflekter?”translated to English means “What is a pedestrian reflector?”and that is the title of the picture book Playtime Seychelles gives to children in primary school together with a pedestrian reflector to encourage children to use a reflector. The book helps children understand why they shall wear a pedestrian reflector and it is written in the children’s own mother tongue creole.
Follow the link and you can read the book in english on Calameo.
We start with a presentation to the teachers about the benefits of pedestrian reflectors and also provide the teachers and their families with personal pedestrian reflectors. We give a book to all class rooms and encourage the teachers to read the book to the children and talk about why it is important to wear a pedestrian reflector before we visit the classroom and give each child a book and a reflector.
At our visit the children are very anxious to tell us what they learnt about pedestrian reflectors and they really have learnt a lot with guidance from their teachers and from the book.
