Writing a Children's Eco Friendly themed Book

Writing an Eco Friendly Themed Book

My wife and I read to our two children every night. There is a real broad range of Children's books available covering some truly inspirational themes and characters. Whilst reading to our Children we have spent many an hour talking to them about the World around us and all of the great things that can be experienced. About a year ago I decided that I was going to write a book of our own.

Why Do it?

It came up in conversation that I had been playing with the idea of writing a story for our son which he would become the main character. My son was captured by this and thought it was a great idea. I had a broad outline of the story which must of changed several times throughout the process of actually getting to the stage of wanting to get it published. Fast forward to March 2020, lockdown in the UK. With a little more time on my hands whilst also juggling my business and childcare I decided it was now or never. Lockdown has given me the inspiration to try something new and writing a book was the one for me.

Why Eco themed?

 Whilst reading to the Children we thought about things that make a difference to us. My wife and I are passionate about the need to become more eco friendly and sustainable in our daily lives. We did a little research and although a few books about various Eco themes there is not another book that looks and feels the same as the one we were going to write.

Now don't get me wrong we are not living our current lives living in a Solar powered home, living off grid. However, we do try to be cautious with what we do and grow food in the garden and are passionate about recycling things properly. I think a lot of the population are similar to us where they do bits but would like to do more. 

Then came the decision to base the book for Children to think about Eco Friendly living and Sustainability in their daily lives. We really hope that you enjoy it.
