The first book of it’s kind!
Former champion Surf Life Saver Boyd Conrick has created a delightful illustrated children’s book that educates youngsters on how to stay safe at the beach by swimming between the red and yellow flags erected by Surf Life Savers.
According to figures from Surf Life Saving Australia’s National Coastal Safety Report 2015, 102 people died as the result of drowning and 56% of these deaths took place at a beach.
Boyd Conrick wants to educate children about safety along our coastlines so they will be safe at the beach during their youth and into their adult lives.
Suitable for children aged 3-8 years, At the Beach with Lizzie and Luke engages children in the fun of being at the beach but also has a serious message about staying safe, as a child almost drowns because he didn’t swim between the flags. Lizzie and Luke race to his rescue and once he is safely on dry land they put a brace around his sore neck. Once he has recovered he realises how important it is to be safe at the beach, and that means swimming between the red and yellow flags.
