Lebang told Briefly News a little bit about the idea

She said she ordered her children's stationery and covers online. However, when the stationery arrived, the book covers didn't - they were out of stock. She had no leftover covers to use, and she looked around the house and saw the piles of Checkers 60 bags - the idea came.

She said she pitched the idea to her son, but he didn't fully comprehend what she was saying and just followed her lead. As soon as he saw the first book covered, he got excited and got into the groove of it.

The mom said that she is trying her best not to live a life dictated by other people's feelings and opinions, and she is also trying to instil that in her kids. She added that they covered the books with Checkers 60 bags simply because they wanted to and did not care what others had to say. Lebang encouraged parents to build confidence in their kids.

"My advice to parents out there is to build confidence and character in their children, rather than spending any energy worrying about bullies at school and what other people's opinions might be.
"It is not the simplest task, but you’ll thank yourself later as you watch your kids grow in confidence, knowing the values that their parents have installed in them and not be moved by the things of the world."
