Annie and the Waves, a surf safety children’s book to help keep children safe at the beach.

Drowning is preventable but each year people still drown! In 2017-18 249 people drowned across Australia! Additionally 551 people experience non fatal drowning which can lead to lifelong medical complications – and  42% of these were children aged 0-4 years!

We need to start to think differently about the way we educate children and their families to stay safe at the beach!

So, to help prevent drowning, we have written a book full of surf safety information and engaging illustrations by professional illustrator, Carissa Harris, that will help to prepare your child to be safe at the beach.

Your child will learn:

How to be sun safe

What colour surf lifesavers wear

Where the safest place to swim is

That all beaches are not the same

That all waves are not the same and that some waves are safest to swim in than others

What the safest type of wave to swim in is

What to do if they need help in the water, and …

That they should never, ever to into the water by themselves!

Imagine…. You can help to turn the tide on drowning by buying this book and reading it with a child!
