Introducing Woodland Friends!

Wooldland_Friends_Logo-01Since we published the Island Friends books, we’ve been secretly hatching a plan to develop stories linked to other eco-systems that could help children learn more about their local environment.

Whilst we’ve still got tons of ideas for more Island Friends stories (watch this space), we’ve also started working on a new series called Woodland Friends.

This series will focus on creatures found in the UK’s woodlands, including birds and small mammals, and will link back to our Enterprise Eggs framework which helps children recognise behaviours and attitudes that will help them become successful contributors to society.

So far we have been working on characters and story ideas so watch this space for updates…
