My daughter, Alessa (8yrs), gave me this drawing the other day. The drawing was a perception of what she thinks the future would be. An ocean and a beach filled with garbage, with animals eating rubbish as if it was something normal. Although her drawing is not so far from the present though, I don't want her to think that this is something that would be "normal" in the future. This drawing stroke me because I want my daughter to be able to enjoy a clean beach and ocean, I want her to be able to see a diverse ocean with animals thriving.
In a way, with this picture, I wanted you to show you how my daughters constantly inspire me, their love for children books and their connection with nature have been the foundations for me to become a children book writer and the source of the inspiration to create outdoorhobbits-books.
Who we are and what we do.
Well, it is just me and my partner for now, we are both scientist and writers, and vey passionate about our natural world, photography and children books.
Our goal is to publish stories that bring environmental awareness to children, stories about natural history, sciences and stories that allow children to re-connect with nature.
This is just our beginning. We would like to welcome other scientist out there wishing to tell a story for children to collaborate with us. if you have a story that you want to tell to children but don't know anything about how to write for this audience, let us know, we will help you develop it and turn it into a fantastic story suitable for children.
Welcome then to outdoorhobbits-books!
