We are very excited to share the release of a new Eco Children’s Book. Active Remedy Co- Founder Tara Joy wrote and illustrated ‘The Inner Sense of Trees’ inspired by her years of working for ecosystem conservation and preservation. Therefore although it is a children’s book, it is looking into some very pertinent environmental and social topics. These include the relationship between ecosystems and the global water cycle, deforestation, water shortages and how co-operation in ecosystem restoration can help in solving these issues. Sometimes such topics can be more easily approached from the perspective of an adventure story with bright pictures that capture the imagination.
In today’s world, good environmental education for the youth is so essential because it is the lack of such education and awareness about the interrelated nature of Earths’ ecological systems, that is responsible for so many of the social and environmental crisis that we are all currently facing. Thus it is important that there are more books available that encourage young readers to respect and preserve nature. Also sometimes adults are more receptive to becoming more environmentally aware for the sake of their children. This book is a great book for adults and children to share.
Here is a brief Description:
The Inner Sense of Trees is a brightly illustrated epic adventure designed to inspire the reader to consider the true importance of nature. It is set on a little planet that is not so very dissimilar from Earth, although it looks quite different. Upon this planet everything – from the mountains and rivers to the trees and clouds – is alive and full of personality. The Igglings and Bigglings inhabit this world and they are at the heart of this story. They once respected and took care of each other, and were the caretakers of nature. Yet in this story something happens, and the Bigglings become greedy, forget the importance of trees and almost destroy every last one. While all of this is happening the Igglings hide away and go to sleep and only get involved when everything is all but lost. The situation seems irreversible and doomed. Fortunately however, they have the help of two wise old trees that are in fact the last trees standing. These trees unite the Igglings and the Bigglings, who put aside their differences and work together to save their little world. This is not a story of goodies and baddies – it is story of forgetting and remembering. This inspirational story highlights the importance of trees, rivers, mountains and working together for the common good.
The illustrations are so bright, humorous and detailed that they tell a part of the story that words alone could not convey. There is a little character that is the storyteller who appears in every picture. Finding this character can be a source of much enjoyment. Also there are pages for colouring in and drawing at the back of the book.
