Dear Pavan, I am visiting Kumasi, Ghana in West Africa, and I brought along two copies of your inspiring book, Two Tales from a Kid. So far, I have read your book to four children, and we discussed the importance of keeping our environment clean. The story about The Two Lakes really seems to have made an impact on the children. I just returned from taking a long walk with 7-year old Kwame. In the past, Kwame may have discarded his juice carton along the side of the road. Instead, he carried it until he could find a trash can. Kumasi has a long way to go before it will look like Sister Lake, but Kwame will do his part and spread the word about the importance of keeping the streets of Kumasi clean.
Thank you, Pavan, for sharing your important message with the world.

Dear Pavan, Yesterday, Kwame and I walked past a very filthy pond in the city of Kumasi. It was filled with trash, and gave off a horrible odor. Kwame immediately commented that it looked like “Brother Lake,” and the people need to care more for their environment. We talked about how every individual around the world is responsible for taking care of our precious planet. He promised to tell his friends about this when he returns to school next week.
Thanks again for your great work.
With Warm Regards,
