Hello! I’m Ruby!

This charming picture book introduces children to Ruby, a sweet little girl who learns about ways to save and appreciate the value of electricity, by engaging with animated appliances in her home. The stories take place in different situations that affect her awareness and her behaviour as she uses her imagination and intelligence to absorb the messages.

Each story reveals a simple way to save electricity and frames it within Ruby's experience. The messages are presented in four delightful rhythm and rhyme tales in picture and verse.

Parents and teachers can read the book aloud to children to expand their literacy and comprehension. In time, the children will be able to recite the book, retaining the messages and begin reading it for themselves. Eskom developed this tool, online and in printed format, to help teachers and parents teach young learners to become energy aware adults, who appreciate the resources it takes to bring electricity to their homes.
