The Three Doof-Doofs – A Bed Time Story

three-doof-doofs-bedtime-storyThe Three Doof-Doofs tells a delightful tale of Sally, Solly, and Silly, three cute little creatures that are responsible for the Doof-Doof sounds you might hear when tucked up in bed. A perfect bedtime story to entertain and alleviate worries about thumps in the dark.

Text and Images from The Three Doof-Doofs – A Bed Time Story

The Three Doof-DoofsWhat is that?!
What is that doof-doof-doof noise?

The Three Doof-DoofsA cat?
A mouse?
A visitor in the house?

No, it’s something even furrier than a cat, even cuter than a mouse,
and much tinier than you and me.

About Book Dash

Book Dash gathers professional creatives – writers, illustrators, designers, editors – who volunteer to create high-quality children’s books that anyone can freely download, translate, print and distribute. Most of the work is done
on a Book Dash day, when small teams work for over twelve straight hours, each producing a new book.

Why Book Dash?

Books purchased from publishers cost too much. In order to distribute more books for South African children, Book Dash participants work as publishers in a single day, having a book with no publishers mean the book will be a lot cheaper the only cost will be printing the books. With these, anyone can run sponsored prints and the finished books can be handed to children.

Every child should have a hundred books when they reach the age of five. that means handing down 600 million free books to South African children who probably could not afford to buy them, More children grow up not learning how to read and write well, and every day we lose more of these children. Let us not neglect these children and help them overcome poverty by first teaching them how to read and to enjoy the worlds that a book can open up.
