Introducing Aku & Kamu

Aku is a Polar Bear from the Arctic Circle. Aku can't read. Kamu is a Koala from Australia. Kamu can't count. Through their misadventures, they both end up miles away from their respective homes and their families. They are both lost in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia.

The characters appear in a series of storybooks, which incorporate key aspects of the Every Child Matters framework:
- Be healthy

- Stay safe
- Enjoy and achieve
- Make a positive contribution
- Achieve economic well being

The Aku & Kamu products are designed to help make learning fun whilst engaging more parental activity in the development of their child's education.

Central to the underlying framework is the vision that learning should be fun, whether children are doing, thinking or feeling.

  Do - encourages children to unleash their creativity
  Think - encourages children to think creatively
  Feel - encourages children to develop and be in touch with their feelings
