Welcome to Island Friends!

Inspiring Kids to Make their Own Luck

We believe that if children learn to be self-starters from a young age, they’ll be better equipped to ‘make their own luck’ in life, and that nature is the best example of this spirit in action. That’s why we developed the Island Friends stories – children’s books about Puffin Pal and his Island Friends that are designed to help children learn how to make their own luck in life.

More about the Stories…

We couldn’t find any books for young children out there that were aimed specifically at developing ‘self-efficacy’ from their earliest years.

We also know how amazing nature is as an example of characteristics such as innovation, creative problem solving, adaptability, overcoming adversity and sheer perseverance.  In developing the books we worked closely with the fabulous folks at the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, who look after the wildlife on Skomer and Skokholm Islands which inspired the stories – please support them by becoming a member today.

Book_SpinesWe’ve brought these together in books that are fun, vibrant and engaging for young children (ages 2 to 7), but which also have really positive messages about the environment and a ‘make your own luck’ approach to life.  Teachers and parents can also download free and fun activities and resources here…

The Island Friends series of books, learning materials, games and resources, are stories with a purpose. They aim to instil in very young children an independent, enterprising and adventurous spirit, whilst also helping them learn about the natural environment.
