Brett Lee pitches lifestyle message to kids through personalised bookNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:06 am ICT by admin
According to news.com.au, each book is personalised with the child’s own details, including their name, eye and hair colour, and names of their friends.
It tells what happens to the child after he or she has a poor game of cricket and heads to a park for some much-needed bowling practice.
A chance encounter with the famous fast bowler takes them on an inspirational journey in which Lee imparts his values of healthy eating and healthy living, as well as a few tips on bowling.
Lee, 30, said the book also encouraged parents to remember that children just need to have fun when playing sport.
“It doesn’t matter if you win, lose or draw, the most important thing is you go out there and give it your best,” he told reporters at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
(Name) and Brett is the second book in the Childhood Heroes series, following footballer Tim Cahill’s book released in June this year.
Lee’s Australian teammate Michael Clarke is set to release the third in the series early next year.
All proceeds from sales of the books will go to The McGrath Breast Cancer Foundation. The book can be ordered online, with personalised details, at www.childhoodheroes.net. (ANI)
