My Wild Life book wins best book for children award
Monday 11th April 2016
The 'My Wild Life' book has won gold in the Gentle Parenting Awards in the Best Book for Children category. All shortlisted entries were tested and judged by a panel of parents who really put the product through its paces.
The My Wild Life book is published by from you to me, who are publishers of the international award-winning brand, Journals of a Lifetime. The book is a tween/teen product, from the Rant and Rave, collection, written in collaboration with Dorset Wildlife Trust, using expertise from our Community Conservation Officer, Briony Baxter, and the DWT marketing team.
Part of the 'My Wild Life' campaign
As part of the Wildlife Trusts’ #MyWildLife campaign and the Every Child Wild initiative, launched nationally in September 2015, Rant & Rave, My Wild Life has been designed to get children and teenagers engaged in nature and the environment, whatever that means to them – riding their bike, walking the dog, camping under the stars, or a nature walk. The activity journal has a fun twist. Two covers allow kids to write, draw and doodle about their wild life, then twist the journal over to rant about how to protect our amazing environment.
We wanted to create a product that inspires children to get outside
Helen Stephens, from you to me’s Creative Director said: “We are delighted that the product was a winner with the Gentle Parenting judges. For us, working with such an amazing charity has made My Wild Life the success it is. We all wanted to create a product that inspires children to leave their electronic devices at home and get outside – their lives are better if they are a little bit wild! ”
We hope the book sparks a life-long passion for nature
Briony Baxter, Community Conservation Officer at Dorset Wildlife Trust said: “Inspiring young people to engage with and love nature is a vital part of Dorset Wildlife Trust’s work, helping to ensure that subsequent generations want to look after Dorset’s natural environment. The new Rant & Rave, My Wild Life journal could be the spark to encourage youngsters to begin a lifelong passion for nature.”
