With crowdfunding support, we will be bringing you cutting-edge augmented reality nature books for children aged 4–6.

Our initial crowdfunding campaign launched on Monday 2nd March 2020 for our first book in the series, the Insects’ Alphabet. We successfully raised £2,185 from 51 supporters over 28 days, to create our demo product. A huge thanks to everyone who supported our campaign with a pledge. 

Our Insects’ Alphabet book aims to support ages 4–6 with their developing literacy skills. It introduces our unique phonics scheme, a UK-first non-fiction factual reader. Children are fascinated by the world around them, and this book and others in the series will tap into that curiosity. 

We want to ensure the next generation has the knowledge, tools and confidence to engage in taking action with their families to save our wildlife. Insect populations are declining and a planet without insects will be devasting for all life on earth. We still have time to make impactful changes if we all act now, no matter how old or young we are. 

Our children are exposed daily to stories on climate change. Our book will ensure they don’t feel powerless, by offering them simple activities and actions they can take in their own communities and schools.

Through further funding we are aiming to bring the first book in the series to your bookshelf before the end of 2022.
