Your Wild Books is based inAdelaideand is a SA owned and operated company. It was the imagination of Brooke Davis, that brought this crazy fun idea to life. With a passion for many things… family, thunderstorms, recycling, nature, growing food, rainbows, childhood, laughing tears, books, sustainability, cups of tea with friends, sunshine, beautiful photography and events.
Bringing more than a few of these passions together, Your Wild Imagination was established in 2016. At the top of her priority list was being environmentally aware, and encouraging kids to do the same. There was one question constantly niggling in the back of her mind: How are children going to care about the environment and look after our planet if they spend a decreasing amount of time connecting to nature?
In March 2019, she started the journey to publish a nature play activity book for kids. After a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign, the book titled 'Your Wild Imagination' was released on 1 October 2019. It combines more than 20 activities that have been tried and tested by the thousands of children who have attended theWild Imaginationprogram over the years. And now many more thousands of children are able to experience the joy of nature play in their homes and classrooms.
With plans for many more books to bring more nature into our lives. The reason for the book is the same reason why she started Wild Imagination in 2016 - the voice telling her kids need nature and play! A book seemed to be the best way to do that. It's not just for Australian kids. It's not even hemisphere specific. It's for all kids, where ever they might be in geography as well as on their learning and ability journey. It's about using the skills and materials that you have and being aware of your impact on the earth. And it's about connecting to nature through play.
