CHILDREN'S STORY BOOKS
Storybooks are an innovative method of educating children about how the health of Gladstone Harbour is monitored/tested and the reported on. GHHP has a series of books now released over the last five years. All GHHP storybooks were written and illustrated by local writer Heidi Jones and local artist Ping Carlyon.
The first children’s story book commissioned by GHHP in 2015 was "Gladstone Harbour Barry & Jenny’s Expedition”. This story explains how the monitoring and testing of the harbour is undertaken and why it is so important. The second edition in the Barry & Jenny storybook series; ‘Barry and Jenny’s Release: Gladstone Harbour Report Card 2016’ illustrates a journey around the Gladstone Harbour. Barry and Jenny’s journey around the harbour sees them visit some iconic landmarks in the Gladstone Region and share the actual results from the 2016 report card with some Gladstone Harbour locals.
The third edition is the series showcases another character from the first two books, Dougie the Dugong. This book is titled Dougie’s Gladstone Harbour Stewardship Study which sees Dougie meet up with all the familiar characters to undertake a Stewardship Study. GHHP defines Stewardship as ‘responsible planning and management actions’. Many of GHHP partners are featured in this edition for the work/projects they are undertaking within the harbour to maintain or improve the health of the Gladstone Harbour. The fourth book in the series is a repeat of Barry and Jenny’s Release but features the 2019 Report Card results.
The storybooks are provided free to schools in multiple copies to be included in the school’s reader sets. Look out for it to add to your collection.
